JSON Formatter is used to Format JSON text, documents or files by indenting & syntax highlighting them. The objects are layed out in a tree like structure which can be easily expanded/collapsed. You can also choose whether to convert the property names in camel case. Dates can be converted to ISO or Microsoft date formats.

This setting governs whether or not the output is indented. The indented output is easier for humans to comprehend. On the other hand, a non-indented output is compact & smaller in size (best for transmission). So, JSON is often minified which compacts & compresses the output by removing non-essential whitespace. This is the most important use of this tool as people paste the minified JSON and try to understand what's in it via indentation.

Use this option only when you are trying to cleanse a JSON structure because changing the keys will result in failure in applications that make use of this JSON format.
Even though, there is no standard for representing dates in JSON, two popular formats have emerged. The ISO Date Format being the most widely used. If you are using a .NET stack, quite possibly you are using the Microsoft Date Format.
