Failing Test 4 - APIs and Microservices Projects - Exercise Tracker

Tell us what’s happening:
Tests 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 pass. Test 4 does not pass for some reason even though the payload is what was shown in the Hint

Your code so far
The problematic code is here:'/api/exercise/add', function(req, res, next) {
  const { userId, description, duration, date } = req.body
  User.findById(userId, (err, user) => {
    if(err) next(err)
      _id: user._id,
      date: date ? date : new Date().toDateString()
    }), data) => {
      const { _id ,username } = data
      if(err) next(err)

        duration: Number(duration),
        date: date ? date : new Date().toDateString()

Welcome, adrianmpop.

The date parameter must always be a Date String. So, even if a date is provided, it is best to create a Date object, and use toDateString() on it.

Hope this helps
