Sorting by date dimension

I am using date as a dimension (in year-month format). However, in the visualisation the view cannot be sorted by sorting options both custom or automatic.

Re: Sorting by date dimension

I think you would need to change sort order, try dragging the dimensions sort options to the top and then try enabling alphabetical or numerical sort option (depending on your underlying values).

Re: Sorting by date dimension

It seems that you [Trip Request Year Month] field is not read a date by Qlik Sense. May be fix this while loading the data

LOAD OtherFields,

           Date(Date#([Trip Request Year Month], 'YYYY-MM'), 'YYYY-MM') as [Trip Request Year Month]

FROM Source

Why don’t my dates work?
