Visualization can't remove Time from Date

 

I've split a column in to two parts, "CreatedDate" and "CreatedDate_TimeOnly". When I go to chart the "CreatedDate" it's still giving me times for the data. How do I remove this?

This looks like formatting only. Go to the data view and change the format of the date column to exclude the time format

Hi @travbum,

 

You should be able to change the data type of "CreatedDate" column to Date type and format it under Modeling tab by first clicking the column within your fields.Smiley Happy

@DanielM80 Did you change the Data Type or just the Format?

both, but i figured it out last night. The x-axis was set to continious not to category... 

Thanks!
