Remove multiple dates in repeating group

Hai friends,

I have to show a repeating group data with their creation date. I have lots of entries in same day. So when i used the creation date field, the same date is repeating in all rows. Is it possible to eliminate repeated dates? i need to see the created date only in a single row contains the data that created first in the that day.
Any body face this problem? Suggest me a solution please.

Thank you in advance.

Hi there, @bentoj72… if I understand your post correctly, you want something like this…


… to look like this…


Is that what you are trying to do?

If so, I played around with this one for a lot longer than I care to admit (I thought it was going to be easy at first), and the only way I could get it to work was to use what feels like a terrible hack of having my own field for the creation date (as opposed to using the built-in Created Date field). The reason I went this route is because you can’t mess with the built-in field via a workflow action, and I couldn’t find a way to conditionally hide the built-in date in the repeating group if it is the same as the date in the preceding row.

So, all of that being said, the workflow for my “solution” sets my created date field to the current date/time…


… and the next step of the workflow blanks out that field based on the following Only when condition…

Finally, I use my created date field as the display in the repeating group, and that gets the result shown in the second screenshot at the beginning of my response.

Anyway, if this response helps you at all, that’s great! If it doesn’t, then maybe someone will come along and tell us both what the “right” answer is because I couldn’t come up with anything else. Who knows, maybe it is super simple after all! :slight_smile:

Hi @bentoj72,

@mikeloc Mike’s idea is correct but the simple way will be to hide the date IF the date index-1 is identical (day/m/y), but I’m still looking to make it work… item#= index-1 thing impossible math. :sweat_smile:


@JohnMark… that is the exact path I was trying to go down but I couldn’t get it to work… looking forward to seeing what you come up with! :slight_smile:
