Show the table in chronological order

Hey! It will show the table in random order if I click the ''show table'' button. Then I need to click the down arrow, then the table will show in chronological order. I am wondering where should I adjust so that the table prioritizes showing results in chronological order. Thank you!

What table? In the database? or a table component? if it is a table component and it is populated by a query then you can adjust the query. - or you can use the Inspect panel of the table component to select ascending or descending by a specific column.... any screenshots?

Hey Scott,
The table shows in the Retool front end side. I think we can adjust it by using the inspect panel, but I do not know how. I want the AltDate shown in chronological order. Screenshot is attached below:

I need to click the down arrow, then it will show in the right order:

In the table's interaction menu, add altDate as your default sort by.

Thank U so much!! The altDate is showing in descending order now! I appreciate it!
