    Hello oppgraphics,

    Please note that you can use regular PHP date formatting in your form's thank you message and email alert to format the date in desired format. You can use the following code to separate the month and year form the date field:



    Where "date" is the name of the date field of form. Please check the screenshot below how to add this in thank you message and email alerts:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
