Hi!

 

I created workflow in which whenever a deal property is updated, new row is added to the Excel table but all of the dates Zapier is taking from Hubspot are in weird format which I can’t work out. I can’t use Date Formatter because it’s not regular date. All of the dates look like this 👇

Does anyone know how to fix it?

 

Whenever Property “Deal Stage” is updated a new row is added to the table in Excel

Hi there @koc,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

The HubSpot integration returns the date as a UNIX format. There are two workarounds for this:

  1. You can use Date / Time in Formatter by Zapier - Format function to format the UNIX date to a normal date format. Like so:

  2. The other option would be to format the date within the spreadsheet itself, if you are comfortable using spreadsheet formulas.  You could try this one: =((A1-21600000)/86400000)+25569 # .Then select the column and use Format -> Number -> Date time.

Hopefully, this helps! 😊
