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

@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?
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
