Code snippet that can be used to convert input date format before saving model in Laravel 7.


Using Date Mutators:

You can actually have laravel automatically mutate your dates to a Carbon object by adding the dates array to your model:

protected $dates = [

Customize Date Formats:


     * If you need to customize the format of your timestamp

     * columns "created_at" and "updated_at"

     * set the $dateFormat property on your model.

     * examples:

     * 'U' - timestamp (seconds from 01.01.1970)

     * 'Y-m-d H:i:s' - e.g. 1985-12-25 15:01:24

     * etc.


     * @var string


    protected $dateFormat = 'U';


Also you can Use Carbon to convert TO the d-m-Y format date.


$user->date_column = Carbon::createFromFormat('d-m-Y', $youdate);
