Hi to my Samsung Community,

ISSUE:  alarms on Samsung S22 phone cannot be sorted by date.  Instead, they are listed in seemingly random order….  With active and inactive alarms intermixed.

Saw this same issue on several other forums.  One listed a solution, but that was just a suggestion by the moderator to pass this issue on to the tech team.  That did not solve the problem.

Understand:  many folks have 20-30 active alarms set and 20 more that are inactive.  It is beyond ridiculous (very confusing and annoying) to struggle with out-of-order alarms.   Even more frustrating is how easy this would be to fix!!

Lack of sequential sorting effectively renders this tool useless because it is so easy to misplace (read: omit) an alarm you want to reuse.  As such, this tool is unreliable.

No excuse for this.  As shown in the forums, this sorting issue has persisted for YEARS.

Please......  Fix this now!

there are up and down arrows to the right of all alarms...you hold and move them at those arrows. But, again, when you go back to your alarms after all of this moving around, they are the same as they were before you went to all that trouble. So, I guess it is just a viewer and not an editor after all.

That does not work for me. I click on customize and it displays the alarms, and I can select one or more to turn off or delete, but I cannot change the sorting order at all.

Thanks, but answer lacks enough detail for me to understand what you are suggesting.

MORE....

There seems to be the option that I want:

1. Three dots

2.  Sort

3.  Alarm time order

While this  does rearrange the alarms, they are not in order. 

To wit, my September alarm and July alarms are listed before my April alarms and March alarms.

This is BIG for me.  Am leaning toward a change to iphone for the AirTag.  This will push me over the line.

Thanks All!

Aha Moment.  I have the same issue.  Looking at the solution offered didn't work.  Then I realized I use the Google Clock, not the Samsung Clock.  The Samsung Clock has the sort option!!!

FINAL SOLUTION...  I just abandoned the Samsung-provided app and downloaded a 3rd party app (free). 

NAME:  Galarm.  Now my active alarms are automatically organized in order as they are set to got off....  the way is SHOULD be.
