Default Calendar Sort Options

  • Describe Feature
    When using Month Name, the default sort is alphabetical. It should default to the calendar order or at least, have an option to sort that says “by calendar” instead of having to create a custom sort.

  • What is the use case?
    I have never had a use case want months displayed alphabetically. It should default to the calendar order.

  • How often would this feature be used?
    Every time you make something by month and year that isn’t a date (ie Looking at January vs January 1, 2021)

  • What is the impact of this feature on your organization?
    Ease of adoption. It is not obvious how to configure the custom sort to accommodate dates names.

This would be useful especially if you’re looking at the last X months of something and it’s early in the year. It’s tricky to show the Year/Month and keep everything in order properly. Especially with the switch to two-digit months (September to October).
