We have a date field, custom, set to be dd-mm-yyyy but when we add a token for that custom field in a mailing it comes out as yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss

How do we change this

  • Of course, you know the answer to this question ... a custom extension. Seems like custom field tokens are not formatting the value of the custom field, just outputting it, at least in the case of dates. I'm not convinced that is wrong.
