When you transfer data from a Google Sheets file, Sheetgo will normally copy date formatting to the destination sheet automatically. If you're importing data from an Excel or CSV file, you need to tell Sheetgo which format to apply.

  • Open Sheetgo and create a New workflow or open an existing workflow and go to Connections > right menu (⋮) and select Edit.

  • Under Source data, go to Settings.

  • Under Date format, select one of the following date formats:

    • 9/26/1980

    • 26/9/1980

    • 1980/9/26

    • 9/26/1980 18:42:17

    • 26/9/1980 18:42:17

    • 1980/9/26 18:42:17

    • or Custom date format
