I am using Google Chart Tools, Views, and Google Analytic Reports to create charts for an admin dashboard.

However the date format (Time Dimensions: ga:date) outputs the date in the YYYYMMDD format.

How can I change that to something like Oct 31?

Note: I have been asking around and apparently NO ONE knows how to do this. Here are some relevant URLs about it:

Feature request #1900994 (from early 2013), with title "Date Format in Views", seems to have been delivered (fixed) near the end of 2014 via issue #2368159, with title "Add support for datapoints types". Refer to description of the issue for more details about it (the problem description, and the actual solution that got implemented).

Issue #2368159 also resolved the issue about Format time duration, a typical variation of the question here.
