How to separate a date and time field into two separate fields of date and time

What kind of formula/method do I need to use to create a  "Date" column and a "Time" column from a "date Time" column?

 

For example:

I    Date andTime     I

I   1/2/2016 3:00PM I

 

Into

 

I     Date           I      Time           I

I   1/2/2016       I      3:00 PM     I

  • Hi there!

     

    You can do this using two separate beast modes. 

     

    For the date, you can use this:

     

    DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%Y-%m-%d')

     

    For the time you have a couple options:

     

    This will give you the 12 hour time with seconds, followed by AM or PM:

     

    DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%r')

     

    This one will just give you the 12 hour time without seconds with AM or PM:

    (will match closest what you asked for)

     

    DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%l:%i %p')

     

    Let me know if these work for you!

  • I would like to follow up on this question as well. How do I take a DateHourMin field and seperate it into Date then Hour and Min. For instance: 

     

    DateHourMin

    | 201907031605 |

     

    Into:

    Date                HourMin
    | 07-03-2019 |  |16:05 |

     

    I tried the Beast Mode calc above and didn't have any luck.

    @StarbucksLover you should be able to do it by using an ETL and setting the column type, there is an option for Date and a method for extracting time. This knowledge base article it kind of similar https://knowledge.domo.com/Prepare/DataFlow_Tips_and_Tricks/Adding_and_Subtracting_Hours_in_ETL
