When using merge feature, I'd like to be able to change how a date comes through so that it is more readable.
The date format is controlled by the User settings.
Each user can change the format in their user preferences.
Right. But there are only so many options and none of them that would be in the format of "October 12, 2016" for instance. Also, I'd ideally be able to transform my default date format into different alternatives (such as 101216 as another example) for different contexts.
