Alert date and time display

Jump to solution

Good morning,

Currently my system is showing alerts in this format,  "dd/mm/yy". How can I change the settings so the alerts are shown in this format, "mm/dd/yy"?

Thank you.

Hi dufer,

displayed date format depends on your browser settings. Check which language is prefered in the browser and change it according your location/format needs.

Thanks,

Pavel

Thanks for all the suggestions. It appears Firefox does not play well with the Orion Suite; I changed to Google Chrome and the date/time are now correct. Weird.

Hi Dufer,

what version of FireFox do you use? This should work on all supported versions nad types of browsers. If it doesn't then we need to investigate.

Thanks,

Pavel

I have Firefox version 17.0.1

As an update, I just updated Firefox to version 18.0 and the alert dates still show as dd/mm/yyyy using that program.

I cleared the cache Firefox and still did not get the required date setting, mm/dd/yyyy. As soon as I installed Google Chrome, everything was as I preferred it.

I see, can you check what language is selected as default in your browser, please?

thanks,

Pavel

Aha! It was set for English - Great Britain. I set it for English and it appears to work fine. Thank you all!

${DateTime} variable was broken in NPM 10.2 and 10.3 and date is reported as 1/1/2013 06:00PM.  In pre-10.2 versions, ${DateTime} was reported in long form; '${DayOfWeek}, ${MonthName} ${DD}, ${YYYY} ${Time}'. I was told it would be fixed in 10.4 (Case # 360826 - ${DateTime} variable has changed) but we are still running 10.3.1 so I can't confirm it is fixed in 10.4.  Any feedback on if it is fixed would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Hope this helps.

My apologies for misunderstanding dufer's post. My response was in regard to using the ${DateTime} variable in Alerts.  SW has confirmed this is a bug through our Case#360826 (Bug-Closed) however, I just confirmed it is still not fixed in 10.4.

The date and time are set correctly on laptop and also on the server where the Orion Suite lives. My laptop shows today's date as 01/03/2013 (January 3, 2013). All of my alerts show as 3/1/2013. Holy cow, this is getting very frustrating. Any other suggestions?

Have you checked your browser settings on the Orion server as per Pavel's suggestion?

Go to Tools, Internet Options. Click on the Languages button and you'll see the following.

Make sure the Language is set correctly to a language that uses mm/dd/yyyy.

Hi dufer,

it should be exactly as Pavel said. The displayed time format doesn't depend on OS regional settings, only on the regional settings of the browser you are using (remember your preffered language must be at top of the list of languages in the browser). I don't know your native language, but for the dd/mm time format should be English (Australia), etc. language set as preffered fine for you.

It seems your browser has set preffered language to the one which uses mm/dd format.

If the above suggestion doesn't work for you, check the settings for windows itself in Control Panel, Regional and Language Options. Change the language to your preferred one or just click on customize and change the date display there.
