I have an application which will allow me to add variables

Customer Question

I have an application which will allow me to add variables (I believe it's liquid). For example, I can add first name %{first_name}, Last Name %{last_name}, Date Created %{date_created}, among other things. The date is something that comes over like mm/dd/yyyy. I would like to be able to change the format of the date to
Here's an example of the code. I made it more simple:

Hello %{first_name} %{last_name}, thank you for your service. You were enrolled in %{date_created}
The output is: Hello ***** *****, thank you for your service. You were enrolled in 07/09/2016
I need the date to be 09.07.2016
I believe I should use some javascript or maybe jquery, but I'm not too familiar with it. I'm using a proprietary CMS that has a WYSIWYG.

Hi and thank you for your response. I'm sorry, my question was pretty clear. I do not want to do a remote session. You never answered my question and I had to spend time finding a solution. After investigating the internet, I was able to find a solution. Can you refund my money?
