    Hi Ben,

    I've checked your form and it does seem that it sorts incorrectly. Have you tried to edit the submissions "Date" field manually? Or have you changed the time format once and reverted it back? I would recommend that you use the Grid Listing Reports, it works correctly with your date field.

     

    I hope this works. Let us know if you needed further assistance on this.

    Thank you.

    Hello Ben,

    Yes you are correct. The sorting feature of date field with DD/MM/YYYY format does not seems to work correctly. I did test it an I am able to replicate the issue you are having. Please check the screenshot below:

    I am reporting it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Thank you!

    Hi alp_deniz,

    I've tried it just now, but it seems sorting of dd-mm-yyyy in the html listing is not fixed. Any idea what to do? Grid is ok, but i need html :-(

    Many thanks

    Gerhard
