Spotfire Analyst - Native conversion function for date in ISO 8601 format

There is no current built in function to convert a string containing a date in ISO 8601 format.

Could TIBCO create this conversion function? This would avoid using substrings and DateTime.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Hi Xavier,

    we have a custom extension implemented that allows you to convert strings based on the defined format into a date or vice versa (converting date into a string based on format) e.g.:

    ConvertDateToString(DateTime(2021,4,29,0,0,0,0), "dd.MM.yyyy")

    ConvertDateToString(DateTime(2021,4,29,10,20,30,0), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")



    ConvertStringToDate("30.12.2021 10:25:18","dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm:ss")

    If that would help, let me know via
