How to convert ISO8601 date format into a Bubble date format?


I’m using some APIs which return dates in an ISO8601 format:
Example: 2023-06-05T21:30:00

I want to extract only the date from this format and convert it into a ddd, dd mmm 'yy format, which Bubble should recognise as a date.

What would be the best way to achieve this?

Hi there! We’ve just developed a fantastic plugin for managing lists, and one of its handy features is text-to-date conversion.

Hi @NoCodeDataArtisan,

I cannot find the plugin…

Does it have another plugin name?

Thanks again,

No, its full name is Listopia [List Handler]

There should be no need to search, usually it is the first plugin in the list.
Can you refresh once?

Found it! I will test and let you know the outcome. :slight_smile:

Thanks again!

Hi @NoCodeDataArtisan,

I think I need some guidance on how to use the plugin.
In my case I am displaying a date which comes from an API response. The date is text and has this ISO8601 format: 2023-06-05T21:30:00

The goal is to display the date in this format: ddd, dd mmm 'yy
It should be displayed as a date, not text, so I can then use the date to do some date calculations later on.

How can I achieve this with the plugin?

Thanks again!
