How do I transform date/time values into human-readable format using Zapier?

I have a zap that works great, but when it comes to autofilling the date from one of the table’s columns, the email that gets sent out includes the date and then a string of random letters/numbers afterward. The format of the column is set as date and doesn’t contain that string afterwards, this only appears in the email the zap sends out that is auto populated from the table.

Example: Table column will contain date- 2/23/2023 and the zap will pull from this and send out an email that contains 2023-02-23T00:00:00.000Z as the date.

Hi @MD_IRE 

Can you please clarify your question?

The underlying value for the field is a timestamp.

The value after the T is the time: HH:MM:SS.sssZ

Since it’s only a Date, that’s why the value is 00:00:00.000Z

You can use a Formatter > Date / Time > Format step in the Zap to adjust.

 

You may want to consider using Airtable instead of GTables.
