    Format date as dd mmm yy RESOLVED

    Asked by AA_C on October 20, 2015 at 10:16 PM

    Is there an option to have the dates displayed as dd mmm yy.

    On my formID=51914358490965, I have 3 dates that are entered.

    Close, Start, End. I have been asked to format them as dd mmm yy and not dd mm yy.

    I likely need some javascript. Can you please help.

    Hi Robert.

    I presume that by mmmm you actually want to format them in a way that will show you the name of the month instead of the number?

    If so, my suggestion would be to use Birth Date Picker widget - it is like the dateTime field, but has the month names written down, instead of them being numeric.

    Do let us know if that would work for you.
