I got the following sorting error, after filling a date :
A processing error has occurred:java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Bad date and time format '2010-04-06'
after formatting the date (see image) its working fine
As you can see in the first image it's allowed to create a flow from a date-input field to a date/time field. Writing to a database works also fine. So I should expect de "sort" would also work in the same way.
For best results, use the Firefox browser..
