For example:

To support a date such as 31/1/2019 add a supported date format: d/M/yyyy

To support a date such as 1-31-19 add a supported date format: M-d-yy

 

Values that are in a recognized date format will be treated as dates in the Filter, If and Sort transforms. Supporting large numbers of date formats will slow down these transforms.

 

You can also change the format of dates using the Date Format transform.
