Changing it to an actual date would require editing the template PHP file. The only point and click option available is the ability to not display it at all. If you are comfortable editing PHP, I can provide some guidance on how to make the change.
Let me know.08/22/2017 at 3:19 pm #432888
Hi Steven – yes I am comfortable editing php code – thank you!

Great! From the screenshot it looks like you are using the Default Entry Card template, assuming that, here the instructions…
card.phpfile found in this folder:
Look for this:
cnTemplatePart::updated( array( 'timestamp' => $entry->getUnixTimeStamp(), 'style' => array( 'font-size' => '10px', 'font-variant' => 'small-caps', 'margin-right' => '10px', ) ) );
Change it to this:
echo $entry->getFormattedTimeStamp( 'm/d/Y' );
You can change
m/d/Yto any valid PHP data format.
If you decide to do this, I recommend following the instructions on how to implement a custom template override so the change is not lost when Connections is updated.
Hope this helps!08/23/2017 at 12:46 pm #432975
Thanks so much Steven! I just have one last (quick I hope) question – I made that update but it took away the text “UPDATED:” – is there a way to put it back in? I have uploaded a screenshot of the new page.
Thanks again for all your help,

You have to add the string, like so:
echo 'UPDATED:' . $entry->getFormattedTimeStamp( 'm/d/Y' );
Hope that helps!08/23/2017 at 5:40 pm #433000
