View Full Version : More date options in DataLink in Advance Edition

09-18-2018, 09:24 AM
This is just a small request I think, but I would love more date options in DataLink on my Minis. I know we have %date (MM/DD/YY)%, this would give June 5th as 06/05/18, but I would like a shorter version which would take off the leading zeros, the new date looking like 6/5/18.

I use %Date(M)%/%Date(D)%/%Date(YY)% to do this for our daily bug in LiveText, but that requires a daily transfer which I'm trying to get ride of with this request. Thanks.

The %Date% DataLink key will follow the Windows date formatting in the 'Region' control panel. Just adjust the 'short date' option to how you want it displayed. This will allow you to get what you are looking for.
