Calendar date sorter

World's simplest time tool

With this browser-based application, you can sort a list of calendar dates. The program can arrange all entered dates in ascending order (from the smallest date to largest), in descending order (from the largest date to smallest), and in random order (the order of all dates is shuffled). If a list contains the same date multiple times, you can remove duplicates in one click. You can also choose the output date format, create custom date format templates, control padding of date components, and turn the time into a 12-hour format.

Calendar date sorter tool What is a calendar date sorter?
This is a quick online utility for sorting calendar dates. It allows you to sort multiple dates in increasing, decreasing, or random order. For example, if you made a list of all the holidays this year and now you need to put all these dates in chronological order, then you can easily do it with this tool. Similarly, you can sort historical dates of the most important events in your city going from today to its founding date. When comparing dates, all date components are taken into account, starting from the year and ending with the second. If the clock time part is not specified in the input date, then it's silently considered to be equal to 00:00:00 (for example, "2025-04-03" is equal to "2025-04-03 00:00:00"). If the day or month is not specified in the date part, then they are silently considered to be equal to "01" (for example, a date "2022" is equal to "2022-01-01" or more precisely "2022-01-01 00:00:00"). Each date in the input list must be entered on a new line and written in the format "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss". The sort order can be selected in options and you can switch between the modes "Ascending Order", "Descending Order", and "Random Order". You can also use the "Remove Duplicates" option, which finds all equivalent dates in the input list and deletes repeated copies. The sorted list immediately appears in the output text field. You can choose a format for the sorted dates and you can also create your own format by using the date component abbreviations and entering them in the "Custom Format" option. Additionally, you can add or remove padding to/from dates (so that the year is printed as four digits and the month and day as two digits) and convert the time from 24-hour format to 12-hour format. Timeabulous!
Calendar date sorter examples Click to use
Sort Dates from Small to Large
This example sorts a list of six calendar days in ascending order. It places the earliest dates first and the latest dates at the end of the list. The sorted output list has the same number of dates as the input list and the dates have the same format.

Sort Unique Calendar Dates
In this example, we activate the descending sort mode and enable the option to remove duplicate dates. The date sorting algorithm first finds all the unique dates in the list and then arranges them from the oldest to the newest. We also switch to 12-hour clock time, remove the padding, and select date format "MMM DD, YYYY hh:mm:ss".

Arrange Dates in Random Order
In this example, we shuffle a list of calendar dates and return them in chaotic order. In the input list of dates, we specify only the year, month, and day (no time part) and we create a custom date format for the sorted dates by setting the date format string to "DD.MM.YYYY", which prints the day followed by a dot, followed by the month, followed by the year.
