Spotfire automatically sorts filters in asceding order - it is doing so in this case as well - but the result is not as intended because the data is in form of a string rather than date/month.

So for the filter to be in date wise ascending order you will have to process that column and bring it to one of the supported date formats

Ex: "FY20-Jan" -> "2020 - Jan"
