How can we improve TrackVia? What features should come next?

Export dates in 'yyyy-mm-dd' format

Dates are currently exported in 'MMM dd, yyyy' format (e.g. 'May 21, 2017'), which adds an extra few unneeded steps to re-format date fields when re-importing, as date fields must be imported in 'yyyy-mm-dd' format (e.g. '2017-05-21).

        Hi Andrew,

        Thank you for the feedback on exported files and date fields.

        The TrackVia system exports data in a CSV format, and due to some formatting settings of a CSV file, it is always going to be the case that you would have to re-format any date fields when re-importing a file back into the system.

        With that said, Excel should have its own local formatting settings that you can double check that can help minimize the amount of re-formatting that you have to do.

        Thanks again for the feedback,

        Justin
