Request for more data formats when importing Recipients

I guess this is also true elsewhere in the system, but I've only just started on the import process.

The data formats supported by the system are a little limited with 2 of the available options being German focussed.It would be nice to see direct support for

MM/DD/YY and MM/DD/YYYY (The other USA option)
DD/MM/YY and DD/MM/YYYY (standard UK/French)

YY-MM-DD and YYYY-MM-DD
YY/MM/DD and YYYY/MM/DD (Versions of the international standard)

Its all a bit strange as the system seem to often use the internation 'short' format of YYYYMMDD when using other forms.

Do you mean the date formats available for import profiles?

At the time of writting the original post, yes this was the area I was looking at. Since then I've had a chance to look at more of the system and the date AGNITAS tag has the same restrictions so it would make sense to enhance that feature as well with a wider range of formats.

The date formats are defined in enumeration DateFormat.java of package org.agnitas.util.importvalues. You could set your own formats here and recompile this class. Format: key(displayString, messagekeyString)
