Converting a string field to a date in EngageOne Designer

Product Feature: Work Center

 
The easiest way to do this is by the use of a date variable within designer.

When a date variable is created that uses a string field, EngageOne@ Designer will automatically cast it from a string to a date.

The way the date appears is dependent on the current active locale (see date section).

If no locale is specified in either publication\document etc, the the settings in the default locale will automatically be applied.

An issue with long date format strings not correctly converting to dates has been resolved in V6.6.7.70 and later.
