How to make the date in contacts appear in order

New Contributor

I am in the Wedding industry, therefore the wedding date of my contacts is very important. I uploaded all of my leads but I am unable to see the wedding date appear in order. I click the little red arrow next to the header, which usually puts things in order, but it just moves the contacts around, and does not put them in order. What can I do? I NEED to see their wedding date in order for me to contact them apropiately.

Hey @DanielaOB can you confirm at what stage you are trying to order these contacts and where?

From your description above, it is not clear if you are trying to order the contacts on the CSV file you are importing or on the Contacts dashboard in the HubSpot app.

I don't know whether it helps, but I solved my 'date sort' issue by discovering that the date field wasn't set to a drop down date picker, it was just a text field. Once I'd changed it (and re-entered all the dates from my imported spreadsheet using the drop down date picker), hey presto it sorted fine.
