How to change date format (language setting apart)


need to change the date format from current ""April 17, 2019 12:00 PM CEST"" to more lean "17/04/2019". This is a custom field value sent by email from Trello as notification, no need of time and other info.

Any advise?

May I ask what tool you are using to send the email notification?

If you are using Butler, you could use the variable {datenumber} to get the appropriate result.


thank for the hint. You're right i'm using Butler to read the value of a specific custom field named "Data ddt" as date picker which i forward as "Data ddt: {{%Data ddt}}" in email body. Date i pick is different from current day's, which is on the other hand, what {datenumber} returns

Format i get in the email is "Month Day, Year HH:MM PM(/AM ) CEST", es "May 7, 2019 12:00 PM CEST", just wanna "07/05/2019".

Is there a way to convert the format to the one i need? Otherwise  have to go for a text field instead for a date picker.

I just checked back on Butler's current possibilities and it does not seem as if there's a way of transforming a custom field's date output into a Butler date variable.

Dear Katrin,

as first wanna thank you for the support.

I finally succeded, here the solution: {{%Data ddt}~DD/MM/YYYY} --> 17/05/2019.

For your further reference, surfing the net i found:

Perhaps i'll be usefull for the future.
