Update existing field in DateTime tool

I love the new Custom Format option with the DateTime tool in Alteryx 11.0, this makes working with dates SO MUCH easier... BUT it would be great if you could update an existing field rather than having to create a new column (e.g. DateTime_Out) and then use a select to put this back to the original Date field.

I feel your pain @Gemma_M and it's not that quick to write the date calcs into a multi-field formula tool either!

Thanks for hanging in! Our product team is doing some research on the UX for this idea, and we'll get back to you once we have a response from the development team on if and when we could implement your idea.

This would be a great improvement!
