2542641 - Analytics - Candidate Recruitment Date (Onboarding data) not reported in 'Date' type


If an Analytics (Report Designer) report is pulling date data (e.g Candidate Recruitment Date) from the Onboarding system, the date data is not in 'Date' type, it is reported in Text type. No further Analytics operator filtering ('between'  etc.) can be performed on this reported date data

Reproducing the Issue

1. Access Business Execution Suite

2. Go to Reporting \ Analytics

3. Generate a report using Report Designer

4. If the report is extracting date data from the Onboarding system, the date data is not reported in 'Date' type, it is returned in 'Text' type


This is the current system behaviour. There is no workaround currently available.
