    How to reorder filters so that they read as dates?

    Alexandra Wilson

      (A)I have the following values in a period variable which I would like to read in this order:

       

      Fall 2016

      Spring 2017

      Fall 2017

      Spring 2018

      Fall 2018

       

      (B) Tableau recognizes these as characters and organizes the filters as:

       

      Fall 2016

      Fall 2017

      Fall 2018

      Spring 2017

      Spring 2018

       

      How do I organize the filters to display as shown in (A)? And, how do I get these to read as date variables so I can use them  to view counts over time in (A) order?
