    Hello Leeladhar Ladia,

    To sort a collection of dates in JavaScript, you can use the sort() method on the array of dates. However, since the dates are in different formats, you will need to convert them to a standardized format before sorting.

    Here is an example of how you can do this:

    var dates = [ "2022-05-01T00:00:00Z", "2022-05-03T00:00:00+05:30", "2022-05-02T00:00:00-07:00" ];

    // Convert all dates to ISO format
    for (var i = 0; i < dates.length; i++) {
    dates[i] = new Date(dates[i]).toISOString();

    // Sort the dates


    In this example, the dates are first converted to the ISO format using the toISOString() method, which ensures that all dates are in the same format. Then the sort() method is used to sort the dates in ascending order.

    Please note that the above example does not handle the timezone offset of date because it will convert to the ISO format which will convert the date to the UTC format.


    I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.

    The simple solution is to use the Array. sort() method. The sort function sets the date format to YYYYMMDD and then compares the string value. Assumes date input is in format DD/MM/YYYY.

    To sort dates in JavaScript, convert them to a standard format like UTC using methods like Date. parse() or new Date(), then use an array. sort() for sorting. Adjust as per time zones if needed.
