I'm working on an e-mail in SalesForce Marketing Cloud that uses AMPScript to populate and event start time. The data extension field that populates the AMP Script is set as a text field, unfortunately that means that times are being set to include seconds instead of just hours and minutes.
Here's what I started with:
%%StartTime%% which populates as 2:00:00 PM
I tried the replace function
%%=Replace(@StartTime,':00',' ')=%%however this left the field blank.
So I tried
%%=FormatDate(%%StartTime%%, "HH:MM", "en-US")=%% and
%%=FormatDate(2:00:00 PM, "HH:MM", "en-US")=%% was returned.
