Convert value and store into a different variable type

Hi guys,

Is there going to be an action where we can convert variables into other type of variables (Text to Date, etc)?

For Context: I'm building a workflow that will pull a date value from Salesforce. However, when NWC pulls this field, it creates it as a Text Variable. There isn't a way i can convert this variable back into a date type to use in the workflow.

Let me know if you need any more info.

    SFDC actions pull date values into DateTime object parameters. As this is no longer a problem, I'll be closing this request.

    Hi Pat. Thanks for your feedback. To clarify, are you looking for an action similar to "Format date to string" but instead an action of "Format string to date"?
