I would like for dates in the Automation to appear as July 4, 2022, for example. Instead, they appear as 2022-07-04.

I have the date field formatted as ‘Friendly’. However, this does not appear to translate to the automation. I thought about creating another field that formats the friendly version of the date as text. But, that seems a bit cumbersome for each of my date fields.

Any workarounds that I’m not considering?

Same idea as the answer here:

^ Use a Formula field with the DATETIME_FORMAT function to explicitly define the format of the field, use that Formula field instead of the original date field in your Automation.

DATETIME_DIFF for the win.

Thank you!
