UTC date & date

Post by drcpub » Tue Sep 14, 2021 1:23 am

Using both these variables I’ve found out there is no difference between. They both spell out the Colette month name followed by day and year. I understand UTC Date should be yyyy-mm-dd. I did this inside ADD OBJECT->TEXT—> and the variable.
Anyone see this? Or seen it before?

The "UTC" part indeed does not change the format of the date, it only refers to the time zone. Depending on where you are in the world this can be a difference of several hours, making the date different in the hours around midnight.

There is currently no way to force the format of the date in PitStop (I believe it will follow the format of your system).

Hi again, So I tried every way I could to change the format through the system, nothing seems to affect how the date is displayed. By chance, would you know someone for me to contact, maybe in Enfocus? I know this sounds trivial but this person I'm dealing with is totally unreasonable and refuses to have the date displayed like that.

Greetings,

Could you describe how your customer "needs" to see the time stamp formatted? I'm getting this result, which seems reasonable.
