Separating Date and Time columns

Hi all 

 

I have a single column that is date and time. I need the date and time separated so that when I export data to excel, they're in their own columns and it doesnt require me to re-create the date/time column as separate date and time columns in excel. 

 

Is their a way I can do this somehow? This is also crucial because the data gets exported to CSV and then saved as .txt and cant have date/time joined. 

 

Thanks for your help all.

Hello @Usernametwice23,

 

As per OOB Behavior there is no Such behavior available in Dataverse Environment. 

 

Suggestion:

 

Create a New Field in Dataverse Environment GET the TIME from DateTime and Save it in that text, then while exporting export that row too..

 

You need to write below SCRIPT

 

function getTime(executionContext)
{
var formContext = executionContext.getFormContext();
var Date = formContext.getAttribute("DATETIMEFIELDLOGICALNAME").getValue();
var Hours = Date.getHours();
var Minutes = Date.getMinutes();
formContext.getAttribute("TEXTFIELDLOGICALNAME").setValue(Hours +":"+Minutes);
}

Dataverse does not have a Data Type for time only. @rampprakash has made a good suggestion below

@rampprakash Thanks for your help. Do you mind letting me know where to write these scripts? I did not know it was possible to do with Dataverse which is very interesting. Thanks again!

Hello @Usernametwice23,

 

You need to write this JS in ONCHANGE of the Date Field. Please find my Youtube for Step by step Guidence for how to write JS
