Date and timestamp in different format

Hi,

I have to admit that I am slightly neurotic.

As such this bothers me:

Johan_H_0-1706770653516.png

Please note how the date is formatted either in German or in local (Finland for me) format, but then the time is in 12-hour format.

Neither Germany nor Finland use the 12-hour format to show time. None of the countries that use the 12-hour time format, use the dd.MM.yyyy date format (to my knowledge of course).

Was this element on the page hard coded by two different developers in different countries, or in the one country in the world that happens to have this date and time format? In the latter case, just out of curiousity, I would like to know what country that is.

Regards,

Johan

I have similar views, and had surprises trying to adjust the datetime display format. More help text is needed, and better error messages.

 I managed to set my date field to 3 digits. 

Edit: added screenshot.

How / where did you change the setting? I didn't even know you could.

I posted the reply in the screenshot at 13:42. Apparently the time stamp is GMT+0 time.

So the time stamp does not show time stampe for the viewer.

Hi @craigcmehil, and @jerryjanda,

I tagged you here because by the look of things, this tag is not visited by anyone, and I fear that this feedback will go unnoticed.

Please also see other posts under this tag.

We are in here daily watching and recording feedback. You can set your personal time zone in the settings as well. The fact that you can give the day ### places seems odd and I will send that to the vendor.

You cannot set the time format, only the date. That seems illogical.
