Gantt chart in Confluence macro - start/end dates & date labels not working

Using the information here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/chart-macro-163415075.html 

I created the attached gnatt chart.

I keep getting "Requires end >= start." if the dates are in the same year.  A year out it works, but the date headings are nonsense.  

  • How do I get the dates to work in the same year without being told the end date needs to be greater than or equal to the start date (it is).
  • How do I get the date columns at the top to be accurate?  
  • It would be great if you could give exacts to put in the parameters.  I read through the Atlassian documentation, entered dates where I thought it made sense, and got the same results. 

Many, many, many thanks in advance.

As a workatound you can try Chart from Table Gantt chart if you have Table Filter and Charts add-on installed.

I don't have the permissions to download any add-ons and the admis aren't likely to pay for it.   Any idea how to get the out-of-the-box gnatt chart macro working as illustrated?   Using Atlassian's documenation it doesn't render as expected (unusable).  Any input is aprreciated!

Check you date format 

Edit the Gantt chart settings Date to reflect capital letters for month - MM/dd/yyyy. This resolved the error for me.
