Simplified date formatting

REcent announcement of dedicated action block for Number Formatting is a key milestone to help citizen developers to avoid complex expressions to manipulate numbers.

I miss a similar approach for date formatting. I mean, there is already an action block for Convert Time Zone that once you provide a standardized date input, it allows you to select th output format (see screenshot below); but it would be great to have also the opposite: set different date formats as an input value, select the king of date input format we are using (d,D, f, F...) and let the 'date formatting' action block convert it to a standardized format.

Love this idea. On multiple occasions, I've pulled an Excel date/time field, and I've had to write it back to Excel in the same format, but for some odd reason I have to reconvert it by adding the number of seconds from December 30, 1899.
