    Thank you!

    You do not have a date separator in the source file. Try using the custom format YYYYMMDD (if the second number is a month). Alternatively, change the format in the file itself (through Excel).


  • Hi @Hali!

    When importing dates, mapping (the order of days, months, years and the number of characters in their definition) is extremely important. Reopen the import settings (or create another one) and pay attention to the date mapping option (example in screenshot 1). Then click Edit and make sure that the mapping matches your data (ideally you will see the match on the right, as in the picture).

  • Can you make a screenshot of the import settings (including time mapping) and the source file?
