Date Formatting and Conversion - Explicit UiPath Guidance and Reference Material


#1

What is the use case

As a non-programmer I’ve had no end of problems trying to learn how to manage dates - and still can’t get it right. This is highlighted in a previous conversation on this issue: Guidance on String/DateTime Conversion and String Manipulation

I find the .Net date functions to be fiendishly difficult to understand, let alone to use. There’s no bespoke UiPath help. and the .Net help is irritatingly obtuse. The forum responses I’ve had to problems with dates generally end up along unhelpful lines: “data formats are hugely complex, live with it”.

How do you see a solution for the use case?

I’d like to see explicit UiPath documentation on date manipulation - bespoke reference material, best practices and hints and tips. I don’t think it’s good enough to rely on generic .Net help to cover a subject that is so complex and so important.
