To followup with further functionality from Using the Format this Value Feature , on-premise formatting of dates can be accomplished within actions on the fly. In the previous post we see how we can specify a return value for Person or Group values from fields or variables. Here I wanted to quickly show that this is also available for Date fields and variables as well.
In this example I am using a Set Variable action to set a Single Line of Text variable the value of a DateTime workflow variable. By selecting the ellipsis to the right of the variable drop down I can then specify the return type to save to the text variable. The available options are As String, ISO Formatted, Long Date, Long Time, Short Date, and Short Time.
