Hi community,

I made an automation and the date is not the same/ Format in the table European. Should I make something special to avoid this ? Or did I miss something ?

Thank you !

Hi @NEPCO - Airtable holds the date in the standard ISO format (I assume) and what you are seeing the in the table is just a “front-end” format of this underlying date. The automation doesn’t use the table format so if you want a specific format in your email, make another field using a formula to make a “date as string” field:

with formula:

DATETIME_FORMAT(Date, 'DD/MM/YYYY')

Use this string date in the email and you’ll get the format you want:
