I can't locate anything that defines what formats Gainsight accepts for Date type or Date and Time types in the MDA.  Does anyone know or know of a document that helps with these requirements for .csv imports?

Hi Lakshmi - Do you know if there are any plans to support any format that would only be 1 h in it? 



i.e. MM-dd-yyyy h:mm



This would be very helpful for one of my current customers, and I've noticed via Zendesk tickets that other customers have asked for this functionality as well.

I was initially unable to load data to mda because the default csv datetime format does not put a zero in front of hours less than 10.  I was able to work around this for a manual load by customizing the format of that column in excel.  It would greatly enhance automation of data loads to add support for the above format Spencer suggests.
