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!

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

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.

@user19828 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
