Reformat Dates

  • Updated
  • Zingtree has built a handy webhook where you can reformat a date to a new format. You just need to add a new Webhook and install it into the node where you want the calculation to take place. Here's how to set it up:

    Step 1: Add the Webhook to your Organization

    1. Go to Account, My Apps.
    2. Click on Add Webhook.
    3. Give the Webhook a name (like "Reformat date"), and enter this for the webhook URL:
      https://zingtree.com/apps/webhook/filters/date-reformat.php?

     The end result looks like this: 

     

    Step 2: Call the webhook from your tree

    Open your tree, and edit the node where you want the age calculated.

    1. Under the Apps / Webhooks tab, click Add App / Webhook.
    2. Pick the Webhook you added previously (Reformat Date , for example).
    3. In the Message Data area, enter something like this:
      var={Name of variable to hold the new date}&format={format of the new date}&date={date}
      Note: Date Formats can be found here.
    4. Save the changes to the node.


    Your edits should look something like this:

    Now just use #‌new_date# anywhere you want to show the future date.
