Time / Date Format

Tempo should respect the time and date format of Jira's Look and Feel User Interface setting. Or have a similar setting within Tempo where the format can be altered.

    Although Jira's date and time format settings are not perfect, they at least allow standard ISO 8601 notation and further customisation, while Tempo forces the slash / as the only available separator on all of us.

    I really hope that T-I-1964 is in scope of Phase 2.

    Hi, We have just released phase 1 of our Date/Time format feature to all Timesheet customers (Cloud). Now users can select first day of the week, date, time and duration preferences at a global and personal level. This is has been requested for a long time.

    You can learn more about these changes here:

    I have removed the On-Premise tag from this idea as this idea is being tracked for Cloud development only. Please vote on T-I-76 for server/DC.

    Cloud feature is already available for Tempo Labs Customer and we are planning to release to all customers on 11th Oct. Thanks.

    Good to hear. How about on-premise? My users are almost Japanese. The time format standard is "yyyy/m/d" in Japan but current time format is "d/m月/yyyy". The charecter "月" cause to Japanese people misunderstand as "Monday".

    This blocks time tracking if using different locale. For instance Oct instead of Okt.

    It's not possible for the user to know what's wrong. Very bad UX.

    We have users in the US and EMEA. Both geos have people who use a variety of date formats such that we do not want global settings.

    How about using Date.prototype.toLocaleDateString() - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Date/toLocaleDateString

    It’s widely supported (even for outdated browsers like IE)… see https://caniuse.com/?search=toLocaleDateString

    It not only handles the number formats; it also does language translations.

    While the Timesheet has the ability for a user to Set Date & Time Formats from the ellipsis button, it does not affect the date picker on the top left of the same screen.

    also our company records all times exclusively in Tempo Timesheets - we would be very happy about a change as soon as possible, we have been using Tempo 10 for 3 days - with Tempo 8 everything was still fine

    Our company spends a lot of time in the Tempo areas, and this would be very helpful!

    We are very interested that the sum of the time is also displayed decimal

    We are very interesting in seeing this implemented soon and we're hoping the product team can give this some love!

    Indeed! I had filed several support request regarding this and some areas were changed but since the redesign that seems to be thrown away again.

    So this time please let Tempo use the date and time settings (as well as the start of the week) as configured in Jira's look and feel.
