I have a url link that needs a dynamic date in the middle of the url. The problem is the date is formatted '2019-11-10' (YYYY-MM-DD). It needs to be '20191110' (YYYYMMDD). is there a way to achieve this?

thank you

You can use the date formatter to format the value as you need.

Can you give me an example please? I have tried several. <a href="'' + fltArDateTime.formatDate("yyyyMMDD" +'/index.html'">. Also with the formatter is there a way to get the yyyyMMDD together(This is a general question as I need a lot of HH:MMa and am having to make the "a" a separate binding? "HH:MM a" works.

I don't really understand which part is unclear for you.
If you want to show the date as 2019-01-01 then you format your date like yyyy-MM-DD
If you want to show the date as 20190101 then you format your date like yyyyMMDD

Any other formatting option is using the same logic.

"yyyy/MM/dd" returns "2019/11/07" "yyyyMMdd" returns "yyyyMMdd". "hh:mm a" returns 08:40 pm. "hh:mma" returns 08:mma
