I am using the user_registered attribute to show the date that the user was registered, but I cant chage the way the date is displayed.
It´s always something like "2017-09-18 18:10:44". I wanted it to be 18-09-2017 or 18/09/2017.
How can it be done?
Thanks for your help.

Types doesn't offer the ability to customize the format of that date, but you can use a custom shortcode to format it however you'd like. Add the following code to functions.php:
add_shortcode( 'format_reg_date', 'format_reg_date_func');
$user_id = $atts['userid'];
$format = $atts['format'];
$reg_date = date($format, strtotime(get_userdata($user_id)->user_registered));
Then you can use the shortcode like so:
[format_reg_date userid="[wpv-user field='ID']" format="m/d/Y"]
