Date and time format

Postby Cafeine » Sun Oct 14, 2018 5:52 am

Why on earth don't you use international standard ISO 8601 for date and time datas (both displaying and entering)? Image
It would be so much clearer and simpler for everyone! Image

On top of that, the "12 AM" "12 PM" notation instead of "12 midnight" and "12 noon" is particularly confusing for many users.

I find this problematic as well. 24-hour clock format would be much easier. It would also be better to have a text-value since the time-format is limited to quarter slots. There are a lot of programs that doesn't fin into such slots.
