Date format for Tempo plugin

Daniel Deftos Jun 24, 2014

We are running Jira 6.2 as well as the Tempo Timesheets and planner plugin. The date format for the Jira fields is MM/DD/YYYY. However when utilizing Tempo the date format is DD/MM/YY. We require a consistent date format for our installation but seem to be unable to alter the date format being present by Tempo in a standard manner. Has anyone been successfull in normalizing the date between Jira and Tempo?

Hi Dan,

we are aware of this problem and are working on a fix. this fix is scheduled to be included in Tempo Timesheets 7.10, to be released in mid July.

Kind regards

Hi Susanne! I was looking at the release notes for 7.1 and didn't see this mentioned. I've gotten some comments about the same date formatting on the planner bar at the top under weeks. For folks in the states that just looks weird, can the date format just use the system default?

Hi Kevin,

you are correct, this fix did not make it into 7.10 as planned. It is now scheduled to be included in Tempo Timesheets 8.0.

Hi! It would be great if this issue could be solved soon since it is rather annoying... Best regards Simon

Hey Susanne,

what about the DateFormat in TEMPO? It look's like it is still not the DateFormat from JIRA and not configurable

Is there an update on this? It was brought up 4 years ago... I see instructions from Tempo on how to update it via the Look and Feel admin section of JIRA but those instructions are not accurate. The Look and Feel administration page is already set the way I want them and yet the date and time formats in Tempo are not the same.
