OData Connection in Tableau fails to show 'date' data types

Issue:
I have successfully connected Tableau to the OData connector, and all text & number fields are displaying correctly. However, NONE of the date fields are showing any data - all are null. When I look at the data by going to the OData website, the dates are shown as expected, but when I try to access via Tableau, they're all null. Could this be an issue with the data type being out of sync? Has this been experienced before? Any other suggestions?
Resolution:
there seems to be an issue with date fields in Tableau when connecting to V4 Odata, but I would like to let you know that we tested with V2 and did not face the same issue so you can do it as a workaround.
