    individually dispaying month, day, year data in a notification email

    Asked by Masalamedia on July 05, 2013 at 03:37 PM

    I am trying to get my dates to appear in a notification email in a format my global team can reliably undertand (3/2/2013 is unacceptable because some will read that as march 2 and others will see february 3).

    In the properties of my date field there is a tantalizing hint that the month, day, and year can be separately reported or displayed, but no documentation or obvious way to know how to use that.

    Please advise if #month_9, #day_9, and #year_9 can be used in my notification email and if so, how? I tried a number of times to get them to work but got nowhere.

    In order to achieve this, you will have to change the Date Format for the field itself. To do this, you will have to:

    1. Select the Date Picker field

    2. Select Date Format

    3. Select ddmmyyyy

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you.
