Text value being converted to Date automatically for certain Journey Builder Sends
Last updated 2020-07-29 ·Reference W-6561003 ·Reported By 2 users
If you create a Data Extension with a Text field used to hold a date, and then use personalization to populate this into a hyperlink, when the email is sent from Content Builder, it replaces the string correctly, but sending via Journey Builder will replace the String into Date format.
1. Create Data extension with 2 fields (emailadd, Testdate (Text))
2. Create email with personalization string
3. Send email from content builder
4. Go to Journey Builder>create journey with DE and email activity
Note the URL difference:
Journey Builder email
There is currently no workaround.
Is it Fixed?
