Hi,

 

I would like to change the date format in my email delivery. How can I do that?

It is a personalisation field from Additional Data. Now it is displayed as DD/MM/YYYY. I would like to change this to DD-MM-YYYY or dd-MMMM-YYYY (so in Dutch: 2 mei 2018). And are other languages also supported?

Same question for using an amount: I would like to display it in Dutch (decimal separator comma, thousands separator is a dot or none. 

How can I apply that on a personalisation field?

 

Kind regards,

Björn

Hi Bjorn,

 

For the date you can use formatDate function in your html. Not sure if there is an equivalent in Dutch but I knew it's working for English and French.

For the number, ACS is not that custom so the approach is to convert the fields as string befor your delivery.

 

Thanks

David

Hi @DavidKangni, thank you for your answer and example code.

Where in the HTML do I have to add your code? 

<span class="acr-field nl-dce-field" data-nl-expr="/context/targetData/datum" data-nl-type="date" contenteditable="false">datum (datum)</span>

Thank you in advance!
