Change date format in ingest dialog
« on: February 02, 2015, 09:40:31 AM »
Hello, i like to ingest cards into an automatically generated dated folder inside the primary destination, but i don't like the format suggested by PM (YYYMMDD). Is there any way to change it, example to DAY-MONTH (DD-MM) or whatever any other format?
Many thanks,
Carlo

Yes, use any of the various date related variables that PM provides.  Put them in the folder name field as you see fit.

{day0}-{month0} should produce the example you provided.

Thanks Kirk, so you mean i have to select the option "into folder with name" instead of "into dated folder only"?

Yes, then enter your path specification according to your needs using {variables}.  Here is where you can see a list of all current {variables} :
