Suggested Fixes

  • Ensure that the schema type is set to string for compatibility with the date-time format.
  • If the schema represents a different data type, consider using a compatible format or removing the date-time format.
  • Ensure that the format used aligns with the schema's type and represents the desired data representation (e.g., date).
