I'm excited for next weeks Microsoft Ignite 2022 conference (Oct 12th-14th) & if you haven't already registered then I DEMAND you register especially if you are a SharePoint Syntex fan! Microsoft this year is a hybrid with an online digital event & in-person event in Seattle plus several in-person regional spotlights around the world. What's great this year is there is lots of Syntex sessions planned so hopefully lots of big announcements - it's great to see SharePoint Syntex getting so much airtime! In this blog I will discuss and list the recommended Syntex sessions at Microsoft Ignite and also talk about my South Coast Summit Syntex session where I will hopefully have some big Syntex announcement news to share.
There has been a small but significant change to SharePoint Syntex Content assembly to allow you to control the format that a date/time field is expressed in the generated document i.e. DD/MM/YYYY, MM-DD-YYYY. Previously dates were expressed in only one format Day MMM DD YYYYY e.g., Thu Feb 03 2022. This update also adds the ability to control the format of the time in your date and time fields so it can be in 12 hour i.e. 05:36 am/pm or 24hr format i.e. 18:05
