Hi David,

did I get it right from your video that the format of dates has changed from yyyy-mm-dd to mm-dd-yyyy?

Hi Klaus,

Well spotted! The current way to enter a date on the new site (ie what you see in the video) uses mm-dd-yyyy. However, as we display dates in format 1 Jan 1980, I have on my to-do list to look for a way to enter the date in format dd-mm-yyyy instead, which I hope will be more consistent for the user.

Do you have any thoughts on this?

Regards, David

Hi David,

it's only an observation of changes (I'm working for international standardization (ISO), that's why things like that attract my attention). As you said, the format yyyy-mm-dd is used for chronological order in computers, and I really got used to it. If you want to change that, then I prefer dd-mm-yyyy .

Regards, Klaus

Thanks for the feedback. I found another date-entry tool that looks like it will allow the dd-mm-yyyy format, so that should solve the problem.
