Date Format Syntax

To specify a Custom Format, please use the following symbolic syntax

For example, if you have a date & time data in this format: Tue, 10–25–2015, 8:42pm, it should be presented in the Date Format field as ’E’, ‘M’–’d’–’y’, ‘K’:’ma’.


The Timezone option is generically set to the timezone of your Vocalize account; however, it is best practice to verify and choose the correct timezone for the embedded data being added.
