Predefined Filter on Date field sorts Months wrong

I have had a Predefined Filter on some pages for Filter by Month on a Date field.  I noticed recently after upgrading to 2022.2 that the months are sorted wrong.  I've removed the filter and added it back but they still sort wrong and even adding them one by one sorts them wrong.  This looks like a bug was introduced with the Other Updates in 2022.2

Hi @PaulCone2 ,

Thanks for your message and letting us know. I will make sure the dev team knows about this.

It appears it is defaulting to alphabetical order, which is correct for string data, but this is a Date field, so this is not definitely not ideal. 

Sorry for the issue and thanks for letting us know!

Ian

@PaulCone2

We're actively looking at a number of enhancements to our filters and this is one of them.

Did you say that this worked for you previously? I checked on 2022.1 and the behavior was the same and to my knowledge this has always worked as it currently does.

We definitely appreciate the feedback as it helps us prioritize development.

It did, but we were running 2020.3.

Was hoping this was fixed in 2022.3, but it's not.

Sorry we were unable to incorporate this enhancement in the latest release.

It always bums the Insights Team out when we hear a user is disappointed with how Insights does something. But I’m glad you let us know, because it also inspires our team to make the product even better.

Thanks for reminding us how important this feature is for your workflows.

I can’t change how Insights is right now but…

I can assure you that we are actively working on enhancing filters in ArcGIS Insights. (Key word: actively.) The future of Insights filtering is looking bright!


Thank you for using ArcGIS Insights and for reaching out on Esri Community to let us know how we can make Insights better for you.

Best,

Ian
