Date Format of csv export – german

we found this forum entry that helped us a lot:

We use the following date format “D., d.m.y”. Unfortunately it uses the englisch short form for the days. I set everywhere the german language and don’t know how to change this in the export.

For more clarification:
now the format in the export is: Tue., 20.02.18
it should be: Di., 20.02.18

Hi there,

Currently the dates output to the CSV will not be localized even if you change the date format as you’ve found, I’ve created a ticket requesting some feedback from our developers on this.

Currently if you want to use the above format and localize the output you will need to filter the export right before its output.

Can you post the cull column names for the date fields you want localized? I’ll provide an example of how you can do the above.

Hey Tony,

thank you for the information.

I use the “Filtered CSV Report” and there are two columns:
-Time registration occurred[REG_date]

The important is the “Ticketdatum” that we need for further processing.

Ok, try something like this:

That uses hardcoded values for the column names but should work.

there must be an error somewhere.
Now it shows in both a time/number(?) e.g.”22:23 22:23″ in both columns. But this doesn’t match a date of registration nor an event date.

I edited the code shortly after uploading the code as I’d used $date_format = get_option( 'time_format' ); here:

Pull the latest changes from the above snippet and restest, it should show the date correctly.

I updated the code.
Now the format is correct but…
– the dates are not correct (in the admin they are both different)
– the “Ticketdatum” shows only one date but there should be multiple dates

Hmm, yeah I see, this will need some further investigation from our developers.

I’ve requested some feedback from one of them and will update this thread once I know more.
