Dear Experts,

When we pull in a date from a form to an email created within a workflow/process, it shows the date plus the time (usually 00:00), Is there a way to just show the date. Thanks. SJ

I think not using the out-of-the-box features.  I think you will need a custom workflow activity.

Hi,

You can create a temp date only field. Use a javascript to update temp field with same date when your date field is updated.

And you can use the temp date only field in the workflow.

@Rikin_Shah, are you sure that Date Only fields will not show the time in a workflow?  I thought Date Only applies only when displayed in a form.

@Feridun, good point.

I just checked with CRM 2011 and it shows Date without time stamp... If it shows... We can have a string field stored with a date only.

Hi both, thankfully the fields were created as Date Only so I would need a bit of JavaScript to ensure that the data only appears on the workflow?
thank you both..

Interestingly I just tried this in CRM 2013 and copied a Date Only field to a text field on the record and it did not include the time.

Its odd as it doesn't pull through the time on a workflow we created before we upgraded to CRM 2013 but on new workflows since upgrade it shows the time (same fields). Thanks.

just going to test now, maybe copying in from word to the workflow may have altered the format of the date
