You cannot change the collection entry to be time-less, if that is what you are asking.
Nor would you want to, once you understand the JS Date Object.
The collection entry:
JS Date Object
If you just want the date portion (or any other portions), you use JS methods to obtain those.
Example to output date only:
Hi brainstorrrm and thank you for your message!
Apologies, I am completely new to this and don't understand the jargon.
To clarify, I would like to remove the time "00:00". So, the field just displays the date "07/01/2019" - is this not possible?
Welcome to JS, JS Date, Corvid, etc.
You cannot "remove" the time from the date object in the collection/database.
The actual value in the collection is a Unix timestamp.
7/14/2019 00:00 = 1563062400000
Epoch timestamp: 1563062400
Timestamp in milliseconds: 1563062400000
Date and time (GMT): Sunday, July 14, 2019 12:00:00 AM
Date and time (Your time zone): Saturday, July 13, 2019 7:00:00 PM GMT-05:00
Go here to play with epoch/timestamp:
We see a date and time displayed in that collection because the database software takes the timestamp that is stored in that field (1563062400000) and displays a date and time for our convenience (human readability).
You use JS functions/methods to manipulate and display date objects.
