I have a report I'm running where one of the columns is Case CreatedDate, which defaults to a DateTime format like 9/10/2021, 11:44 AM.

Is there a way to apply formatting to this so it could show in the report as m/d/yy (example, 9/3/21)?

  • Thanks. I've tried this, but it will just give me 9/3/2021, rather that 9/3/21. Any way around that? Sep 14, 2021 at 13:24
