I've been through associated answers but cannot quite seem to find something which works!

I'm having trouble getting TimeManager to recognise a simple data field (this is in QGIS2 - but I've had this error in earlier versions). I have these fields formatted in what appears to be one of the acceptable formats:

enter image description here

... here is a screenshot of the field properties:

enter image description here

The format appears to be recognised in QGIS as I've worked out days difference between two dates (the "Time on Market" field shown in the image).

However ... I always end up with: enter image description here

The Twitter.shp file works fine as a test, so I don't think this is an issue with the install / phyton conflict.

Any thoughts welcome!

Missing support for fields of type date is a known issue: https://github.com/anitagraser/TimeManager/issues/37

It should work when the fields are converted to text.

  • Ha! Thanks ... I'd spent a good hour going over GitHub and cannot believe I didn't see that (missed it by THAT much). Thanks for the steer, works fine! Oct 17, 2013 at 21:01
