Date formatting

Is there any way to change the formatting that the CurrentDateTime function outputs? The default seems to be to output dates without a leading zero (i.e. April is represented with just '4'). However, my web form that I am trying to automate is strict and requires a leading zero for month and day numbers (i.e. April needs to be represented with '04').


Any insights much appreciated.

using "get current date and time " action you will get current time and date with dd-MM-yyyy format for ex: today's date is "21-04-2021 and time" like this


this is just a example

Unfortunately, I need just the date, without the time. Even though I selected to retrieve the current date only, it still stores an empty time, just like in your screenshot. In order to get around this, I tried to reconstruct the date manually, but CurrentDateTime.Month returns '4', instead of '04'. My web application is rejecting this.

Thanks - that gave me the ability to convert the date into the exact format that I needed.
