Team Calendars - Military Time

How can I remove the military time scheduling functionality in Team Calendars (Create Event > When)? See attached screen shot. 

This is not tied to the Display Time Format field under Global Settings for Calendars, and I have the US language pack installed, so I'm at a loss here. This is not user friendly for my teams and it is going to be a deterrent in using Calendars for scheduling.

Hi Brianna,

Do you mean you want to change the 24-hour scheduling to 12 hour scheduling and add in the am and pm times?  I don't think this can be done in Team Calendars (or anywhere in any of Atlassian's products).  If you want Atlassian to provide this you can log an enhancement request at (although as I write this that site is down for scheduled maintenance, but it should be up and running again very soon).

This won't be much help to you, but for information: Outside of the US the 24-hour clock is normal and standard. It would be user-unfriendly to use a 12 hour clock in most other countries. Atlassian have used the worldwide ISO standard for timekeeping because they sell their products worldwide, but if the demand is there for a country-specific localisation then either they'll do it, or you could ask a 3rd party to customize your instance for you.  However, 3rd party customization of this kind is not available on the Atlassian Cloud platform, so you'd have to move to a hosted instance. Like I said, not much help to you, but it might explain why the system is the way it is.


As an ethnocentric American, I think 12 hour time would be a better default.
