    Sorting Time Range values in Visual Report does not seem to work

    Asked by hdenton on May 09, 2016 at 10:16 AM

    I have a visual report of a sign up sheet that I want sorted by time, but it's not sorting it correctly in either ascending or descending order. What did I do wrong?

    I have checked the following form in your account: http://www.jotform.us/form/61293587414158 and I see the report on the same.

    What seems to happen is that it is sorting it as string - which means that 9 is before 1 if sorted in descending manner and that 1 is before 9 in ascending manner.

    That is why you will see 9 followed by 8 and then by 1 (2) and 1 (1)

    Since this seems as a bug since it should sort it out more nicely, I will raise this to our developers.

    As soon as the same issue is resolved, we will update you on the same here.

    Unfortunately we can never give any timeframe neither on bugs nor on feature requests. As I had mentioned that I will, I have raised this up to our developers and once this is assigned to the right developers and they resolve the issue they will post their update here.
