Forced to use American date format

Hi All,

I completely understand if your business is within The United States (or Kenya, as that is literally the only two places on the planet that use this date format, and it’s optional in Kenya), but for the rest of the English speaking world, it is very annoying to have to mentally adjust to results, and worst, having to modify reports that go up the chain every month.

Any one else experience this on the regular? I have raised a Feature Request for it, though I fear it will fall on deaf ears.

Laurance.

As an American, I would very, extremely, hugely much prefer to use ISO 8601 date formats.

Any of these:
2022-02-17
2022-02-17T22:42:48+00:00
2022-02-17T22:42:48Z
20220217T224248Z

I think this is definitely valid, and I can see it being inconvenient having to mentally “translate” the date + modify reports for other folks who are viewing them.

We now have an IDEA ticket for this internally, and I will add both of your feedback to it so we can keep track of it. Appreciate you sharing this!

Thank you for helping to get the ball rolling.
And I agree with ctaylor’s point of having an option for ISO 8601 if needed, as it is “the” standard.
