OnePlaceMail Grouped by Date view
We have a document library used to file meeting papers which are tagged by meeting name and date of meeting. The information type for the date of meeting column is 'Date and Time' with the format of the field set to 'Date Only'. The default view for the library groups the files by meeting name and then by date of meeting.
When files are uploaded to this library using OnePlaceMail, they are not only tagged by the specified date but also by the time that the file was uploaded. This is problematic as it affects the default grouped view. Files are grouped separately based on the time when they should be grouped together by virtue of the fact they share the same date of meeting.
This is not an issue when viewing the files in the web version of SharePoint as there is no time field the files are grouped correctly.
Do you know why this occurs and whether there is anything that can be done to remedy this? Ideally the date column in OnePlaceMail should display the date only and not the time (or the time should read 00:00:00 so that it does not affect the grouping).
Currently we have to re-tag the files in the web version by date which defeats the purpose of using OnePlaceMail to upload them.

I am currently trialing the OnePlaceSolutions suite and have noticed that this is still an issue.
When viewing files grouped by a date field in the OnePlaceMail/Docs Window, they are also tagged and grouped with a time based on when the files were uploaded. The SharePoint field in question is set to "Date Only", so this should not be the case.
It's frustrating as this is creating additional, unwanted groupings and negates the benefits of using the Explorer Window.
This topic is set to bug resolved, although I'm unable to recall the resolution when the issue was originally raised 3 years ago. I'm hoping there is a setting I can configure but any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your inquiry.
