Formatted Date > Template does not appear in Email component

My app’s URL:

I created a couple template columns that I’m using as part of an email component (subject line and body):

You see that when I substitute D for the Date column, they appear in the data editor. Here’s the Email component setup:

However, when clicking the email icon to send the email, the dates are missing:

I wonder if this is somehow related to the reason we can’t use glide columns with Stripe. I’m guessing it’s some sort of limitation with the way Glide currently works. I bet the template is built on the device itself, so maybe that is some reason why it’s not working. Hopefully they can shed some light. In a roundabout way, you could probably submit the template through a form, then email the resulting value from the form sheet. Not ideal though.

Also, just be careful about using ‘D’ for your replacement. Any capital D will be replaced. I’ve been working on a project where I have several wildcard replacements and I wrap them in {} for both visibility and for uniqueness. So in your case I would use {D} instead of D. You can see that the D in dining services is getting replaced in your case.


Yeah I caught that after the video. I will, in the future, take your suggestion of variable wrapping. Thanks!


We’ll fix it. Thank you for reporting!


Hi @Mark, this still hasn’t been fixed. I’m also seeing what I believe to be a related issue. Again, I’m combining a date with a body of text but instead of using it in an email component, I’m using it as a “default value” in a form.

Again, the date is missing:

Here’s the URL to the app:
