Toolbox plugin - collection of utility elements

I’m manually coding user data and trying to automate some of the most error prone parts. So I’ve got strings like “2019-03-11T0745” describing date and maybe time of data points.

Is it possible to use the expression widget to parse these strings into bubble datetime things?

I tried using “new Date(input A’s value)” like in this thread but even when I add ticks like “new Date(‘input A’s value’)” it doesn’t actually generate a date. Convert text to date

The closest I’ve gotten still gives me this error “The plugin Toolbox / element Expression threw the following error: Error: Expected a date, but got a object (original data: null)”

Google & Stackoverflow seem to think that javascript’s date() function doesn’t do a good job of parsing ISO strings. Is that what I’m running into?
