Right string operation to remove the timestamp

I have a long date that I have converted to a text. Now I want to use the string operations tile to cut off the tail so I can have a nice clean date. the way it looks now in a string format is:


2022-02-24T12:08:34

What I want is:

2022-02-24


What I have been trying is:



But it leaving the date unchanged and that timestamp at the end is still there.


Thx

    That looks correct. Are you looking at the newly named column for your result as it won't affect the original column.

    A better option might be to use the Formula tile and use the date function to extract the date from your field. It would look like this:

    DATE(`drentlastchanged`)
    

    This will not only produce just the date, but will make it a date column that will be more usable at the card level.

  • @MarkSnodgrass Son of a gun you are right. The dataset has a ton of columns and I wasn't looking for the new column to be at the end of the columns. I was just referring to the existing column. Thanks!
