Very weird Text > Date behaviour - Bug?

I have a text field (in standard date/time format) being passed from an API.

Trying to store it in a date field.

Bubble gives me an error …

But then it actually works exactly as I wanted. It even did the Time Zone correction for me.

So…WTF.

Do you suppose that because you’re extracting with Regex then Bubble’s error checker is assuming it’s made into text?

Regex is indeed extracted as text

No, it says the same thing if you put another step after, and make the date field = text field.

It is definately a text field, and I want to put it in a date field. Which am fairly sure should be possible.

It works if it comes directly from the API, as Bubble knows it is a date.

But the API provides a list of events, not an Array, which is annoying.

Ah, API connector had forgotten it was a date.

So I can store the list of dates in a … list of dates and then use the index to find the right one…which is a date.

Still a bit odd !
