Configuring dynamic dates
Dynamic date is configured through using the Template Designer. For more on the Template Designer, please refer to this article.
Before dynamic dates can be configured, there are some mandatory requirements that must be in place. Date insertion is dependant on two inputs:
2. Date format.
3. Form Configuration.
Language and Date format need to be specified in data sources, which are used by the Template Designer as a reference.
Date formats data source
Below is an example of the data source used for date formats. It can be downloaded as an Excel file below.
Language column: IANA code.
Type column: friendly name for the date format.
Format column: the date format specified using the .Net framework.
Language data source
IANA column: IANA language code is used as internal reference by Templafy.
Language column: contains values shown to end-users in the drop-down menu.
To allow for date formatting Templafy needs to have a form field on the User Profile called, "DocumentLanguage". This form field when added should be a dropdown that references the Languages data source and it should be a "required" field.
