when i create a pivot table and select the date field, it doesn't pull the data in as Dec 12, 2018, etc. it pulls the data into the pivot as year, and quarter. 

 

See screenshot below. how do i fix this? 

 

first screen shot is how it's pulling the date field.

second screen shot is how i need and it should be pulling the date field data.

You may remove Year and Quarter fields when created or in options disable that setting

@abrown520 Try right-clicking any of the date items (Year, Quarter or Date) and select Ungroup from the context menu.
