You can sort the StrDate this way;
right-Click the blue pill StrDate - select Sort - Ascending - Field: Date Agg: Minimum
I also modified your strDate to add zeros on days and month lower than 10

Sorry for the delay in responding. Many thanks for the help, this allows me to use the workaround.
Could you please help me understand why Tableau creates the entire date axis for each panel, even when dates are set to discrete? I imagined that this would only happen for continuous dates...
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
I was out of office for the last two weeks, just saw your post.
I don't have an exact answer, but it seems that Tableau manages a Date type dimension differently than a numerical or a string dimension.
So even if there is no mark for a specific date in one of the pane, it will keep all date values on the axis. I guess it's by design.
