i have a zap from eventbrite to google sheets but the field "event start local" is giving random numbers - I need a field that will give me the time and date of the event but it’s just bringing in random numbers like 44525.59375

 

any ideas on a work around - I need date and time of the workshop in the spreadsheet as I run many ongoing multiple eventbrite events

 

thanks

Hey @Petewarnock11 can you post screenshots of how your zap is set up? It might be worth it to double check your parameters are mapped correctly.  What options does eventbrite give you for mapping?

Hi @Petewarnock11 

The extra backslash at the end might be causing the issue.

 

no I just added that field in as the one above (start local) wasn't working - ive deleted the backslash

 

 

this is the one i need working

You may need to specify the format of the column in GSheets to be a date: https://support.google.com/docs/answer/56470?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop#zippy=%2Ccustom-date-formatting

 

Alternative is to use Airtable instead of GSheets as your operational database app: https://zapier.com/apps/airtable/integrations

Airtable has defined field types unlike GSheets: https://support.airtable.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042806913-Date-and-time-field
