Changing date from 2016-01-22 to 01-22-2016

Hi,

 

I've seen posts that are similiar but not quite my same issue.  My data is coming in like 01/22/2016 and DOMO is changing it to 2016-01-22.  Can you please help on converting it to month-day-year format.

 

I've used the below but wondering if there is anything in the ETL(Magic preferrably) to do it so I don't have to have multiple beastmodes for date all over my selects.

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

    Thanks for clarifying @DMJerry. Since the data is coming in as a date then we should be able to adjust the format of the date using the chart properties. Here is an example of how to do that. I don't think there's a way to change this globally, it has to be done at the card level.

    Does that approach meet your needs?

    Hi @DMJerry thanks for reaching out. Can you provide a little more information about the issue you're seeing?  Is the data coming in as a date format, or is it text? Also, are you seeing the date being formatted as YYYY-MM-DD in a card or in the dataset in the datacenter?

     

    Thank you,

  • Hi @creed, Thank you for the response.  The data is coming in as a date.  In the CSV raw file it's "MM/DD/YYYY" but when it comes out into the final dataset it is in this format "YYYY-MM-DD" .. I don't mind the "-" vs "/" but I wanted to change the format within Magic(if possible) so I don't have to do the beastmode that I've had to use in my original post.  

     

    Thanks for your help.

  • Thanks @creed , sorry but I should've been more clear but this is for table cards which do not have that option.  This is definitely a solution, so I'll mark it, but i really need it for table cards.  I'll send it to feedback as an enhancement for the table card chart properties.

     

    Thank you for all your help.
