    Problem with new List View in Umbraco 7.2.1

    How would I use the Event Start Date as a column in the new (customizable) ListView?

    When I specify a column "Event Date" (using alias "eventDate") the entire JSON string is returned instead of just the date:

    {"recurrence":"1","weekInterval":"1","monthYearOption":"1","interval":"1","weekDay":"1","month":"1","monthOption":"1","startDate":"2014-09-20 18:30:00","endDate":"2014-09-20 21:00:00"}

    It looks like "startDate" is not exposed globally and List View seems to be limited to global aliases only.

    enter image description here

    I am not sure how to solve this at the moment, but I'll look into it. Because the value of the datatype is saved as JSON it makes sense that this is displayed, but I'll see if there are a way to do what you ask for. It would have been very nice.

    Oh yeah, that's a major issue... Umbraco should provide a formatter for datatypes.

    There is another issue in that you couldn't create auto DateFolders based on the property value. Without either date folders or a usable list view, it makes it difficult to use.

    I don't think it will be possible to get a good list-view in the nearest future. But if I can find the time, I will look into including a optional date-folder function for better usablilty.

    It looks like this issue: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-6003 will be fixes in Umbraco 7.3.0. Then it will be possible to copy the start-date to another property (e.g. a textfield called "startdate") when content is saved and use that for sorting in the listview. I think that will be better solution for the future then to include some custom date-folder-functionality.
