Workflow Date/Time Picker- Date only needed

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Howdy all,

I have a project where the input form includes a Date/Time picker assiged to a Process Variable.  Inside an embedded model, a second form is presented to the approver, which includes ASCII merge labels showing the (now mapped) value of the Date/Time picker.

Problem (admittedly an aesthetic one) is the time stamp shows in the ASCII text, and i don't want it to.

Anyone know how to remove the Time component, either at the Date/Time Picker, the data mapping into the embedded model, or at the ASCII component?  I don't need Time at all, just Calendar date.

Can't find a Date-only component, maybe i need to put an output component in there somewhere?

In the ASCII text use the date formatter instead of the string formatter. You can than edit the output format of the date property as you like.

Hi Sascha,

that's the one, many thanks. Didn't realise that when you pick the DateTime builder, it still defaults to the String editor..
