How do I setup my date formatting in my Brightidea system?


 

Administrators can format their dates to coincide with any custom format in Brightidea's site setup.

  • Under Enterprise Setup/WebStorm Setup --> Site ---> Components, see "Enable Date Formatting"
    • To accommodate other formats of dates in the WebStorm or Enterprise, please be aware of the feature to change the DD/MM/YYYY format:

  • The format needs to keep in style of MM DD and YYYY
    • The administrator can choose any from the following:
      • DD-MM-YY
      • DD-MM-YYYY
      • MM-DD-YY
      • MM-DD-YYYY
      • YY-MM-DD
      • YYYY-MM-DD
        • Please be sure to keep in above format with dashes.  
    • Select "Save Changes" when finished. 
  • The custom date format changed is reflected in Ideas, Widgets, Idea Boards, Search, and Setup area exports. 
    • Currently, custom date formats are not supported in any back-end list views, e.g. Action Items, Lists, Dashboards.
  • Please Note: These dates will be reflected after a month's duration of activity.
    • Example: If the administrator submits an idea three days ago on April 20th, the date history will say "3 days ago".  Once 30 days has gone by, the new format will trigger the April 20th date in all aspects of WebStorm.

    Is there any way to include letters for the month vs numbers?

    Hi Stephanie,

    If you are referring to the display of the idea date, there is no functionality to change it to letter format at this time.

    Thank you,

    Brightidea Support
