Hi Aravind,

You're so close... Note in the example that you should be using forward slashes instead of dashes:


That should do the trick.

Importing dates are tricky.  I've had GREAT success by formatting my csv to be MM/dd/yy.  

When I import, I basically have 12/12/21 and this works really well for me.

I struggled a lot to finally find a format that actually stuck.

Hi @Mark Segall ,

I have formatted my csv file to dd/MMM/yy also.But i am facing the same error.

I ran into the same issue.  I had to update my CSV and my Jira settings to match MM/dd/yy. 12/20/21. This worked well for me.
