Path: Profile >> Profile Information >> Select Your Date Format (Choose how you want to display and enter dates)
Many countries have different ways of writing the date format. To enable them to enter and see the date within the community in their preferred way, IdeaScale has added a date format selection option in user profile section.
For users who have not selected any preferred date format in their profile, they will see the date in the default format set by the community administrator within their community.
This feature does not show the ideas and comments in select date formats, they would continue to occur as submitted seconds/minutes/weeks/months/years ago. Though the date type of custom fields, exports and reports start date - end date selection will show the date in the format set by the administrator/user.
