    You may separate the date field by using :day, :month, :year with the field name. However, when I tested it by using {reservationDate5:day} {reservationDate5:month} to the subject line of the notification in the cloned version of your JotForm, I see that the subject line is trimming these fields. But the same fields are working fine when they are placed inside the email notification body.

    Let me test it further and get back to you with any useful information that I may find. Thank you for your patience.

    After testing it further, I see that separated field tags are not being displayed in the subject line of the notification email. I'm forwarding the issue to our backend team to take a look. If there is any update in this regard, you'll be updated here.

    Thank you!
