Date format for Tempo plugin

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?

@Susanne Götz or anyone else from Atlassian who's reading this:

It's nearly 6 years later and this bug is still not fixed. PLEASE fix it!! It may seem like a trivial, unimportant fix, but it's really annoying!

Has this been fixed? 

We're trying out Tempo Timesheets - 10.15.2 and have dates showing up as 27.04 (for April 27th).

This is driving us crazy.

How do we fix this date display?  Anyone?

This topic shows SOLVED!!!  But I still see European date format in the TEMPO Timesheet View!   Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!

This issue should not be marked as solved.

Six years later and still NO SOLUTION.  I included a picture this time so you know exactly what is the problem.  The submit period shows an ISO date which is fine.  But the calendar selection dates can't be configured to either ISO or USA formats.  See below:

I also see this show up in a different view:


But perhaps since this question has an accepted answer, no one pays attention anymore. Maybe it's time to make a new one.

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




Still US date AND time format...

This is still scheduled to be included in Tempo Timesheets 8.0. 

Is this released?

Any time estimation for this version?

(so annoying for us from non-US world...)

This Issue is in Progress and is estimated to be released in Tempo Timesheets 7.13 later this month/ early June. You can follow for updates.

As always, Thank you!!!

No change...

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.
