1. I have changed the date format in my instance of JIRA from the default to mm/dd/yyyy, but when I enter the Log Work screen, the date format of the "Date Started" screen remains the default format, e.g., "17/Sep/12." Is there a way to change this?
2. If I change the "Date Started" field to another value using the date picker, then the date displayed in the field is formatted mm/dd/yyyy (see below). But then I get the following error: "You must specify a date on which the work occurred":
It appears that the "Date Started" field is still expecting "17/Sep/12" rather than "09/17/2012" and gets angry when it doesn't get what it wants.
To change the format for the date picker you'll need to update the formats at General Configuration > Advanced Settings.
Please remember to use 'MM' instead of 'mm' since 'mm' is referring to minutes instead of month.
Hope this helps,
