As you can expect, I am using a function field to manipulate a time field;
two issues appeared

  1. gmt zone went crazy inside the new form field
  2. language for dates now are shown in english.

Two solutions came to rescue:

  1. For issue # 1 I can use:
    DATETIME_FORMAT(SET_TIMEZONE({date field}, 'America/Bogota'), 'dddd, MMM D, YYYY h:mm a')

  2. for issue #2 I can use:
    DATETIME_FORMAT(SET_LOCALE({date field}, 'es'), 'dddd, MMM D, YYYY h:mm a')

They both work perfectly INDIVIDUALLY,

How can I combine these 2 formats inside one single formula.

You can use this formula:
