Issue due date and time?

When I add a due date, the system actually records a time of 12:00 AM. How do I select a due date and time when creating / editing and issue?

Due dates don't have a time element, they're just a date. So I'm afraid there's nothing you can do.

Ok, not the answer I was looking for but it is what it is.

If this is the case (which it is) then it would be nice that watcher email that is created when a new issue is created did not include a fixed time of 12:00 on the date fiels.


I think that you have changed the format of dates.

That won't help, as due date is a date only.

But, i think that it can add a custom field date time type and set it with the value of the due date with time

@Nic Brough,

yes it's right what do you say, due date is date type and not date time type.
I paid no attention.

Of course you can add a custom field. But then it's not the due date.
