Problems with dates hierarchy

Answered
Milan Dragovic asked on May 5, 2020

Hi there,
We have downloaded Flexmonster trial version, installed it on our web server and are testing it with connection to csv data file.  My colleagues (based in Bermuda) connecting to the same html page as me can see the dates in hierarchical way, but for me (browsing in Google Chrome) dates show as string.  If browse with IE, i can see the dates hierarchy.  Could you please advise us on how to avoid these differences?
Many thanks
Milan

Hi Milan,
 
Thank you for posting your question, we will be happy to help you here!
 
It is indeed possible to specify a date format for a particular field – this can be done by configuring the Mapping object. Mapping allows you to define the types and structure of your data, including hierarchy captions, leveling, grouping, etc. In your case, you can specify the type of your date field the following way:
 

...
mapping: {
"myDateHierarchy": {
type: "year/month/day"
},
...
}
...

Feel free to check out the following tutorial to learn more about Flexmonster mapping: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/mapping/
 
Please let us know if this helps.
 
Best regards,
Mykhailo

Hi Mykhailo,
Sorry for not coming back to you any earlier.  We did manage to do what we wanted.  We do have Flexmonster doing what we need at the moment.
Thanks for your help
