How to format a Datetime attribute to Date only on web?

How to format a Datetime attribute to Date only on web?

How to format a Datetime attribute to Date only on web?

Here is my situation. I have two attributes (A is datetime while B is number) in an object prompt of a report. The goal is to show A as Date only without time while others keep same. If I change the form type of A to Date at attribute level, Desktop only shows date while Web still shows date and time. If I format the whole object prompt to date at report level, then B becomes date on both desktop and web.

Any thoughts on getting around it?


RE: How to format a Datetime attribute to Date only on web?

this is a somewhat strange requirement to format the same attribute differently based on web or desktop...

the only thing i can suggest is to create a "time" form of attribute A and let that be accessible over desktop.  Keep your attrA as Date format for the ID form.  

so now in desktop a user can RMC on the attribute in the report and choose to also display "time" form of attrA.
