I am using the date picker on a web form. I then proceed to store it into a database.
The problem I have it sends the date in msg.payload as "1571826972734" I would like this to be human readable. Looking at the github documentation doesn't show anyway to configure that except to change the format of it. as in mm-dd-yyyy or yyyy-mm-dd etc but it still sends the 1571826972734 as a value.
I can see if I use a debug node and click on the output it is able to translate it into a date.
2 questions come from this.
- can I change the date that it sends via msg.payload?
- If I cant do 1 then what is the formula it is using that I can convert it back from 1571826972734 to human readable via a function node?
