Can you turn off military time in Team Calendars?

I am setting up Team Calendars for our company intranet and would like to be able to set time using the AM/PM format. Currently I cannot change the setting in the admin console or the user settings. Is it possible to use the am/pm format?

Hi there,

The Team Calendars follows per user language preferences to decide which day is at the start of the week. For example, if you want to make the start of the week to Sunday (US Calendar), you would need to install the US Language pack and edit your Confluence user preferences to choose US English. To do this, click User name > Settings > Edit > Language and then choose US English.

The date format is dependent on the users language settings and automatically adjusts accordingly - this is a Confluence user and global setting. An admin can set the site default language (see Choosing a Default Language) and a user can also set their preference (see Editing User Settings).

Also you can follow this document:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+Time+and+Date+Formats

Please let me know how it goes to you.

Regards.

Hi,

We followed the documentation but this did not resolve the issue. The time is still formated in 24 hour military time format. I installed the US English pack and it did not change the time format. Neither did editing the date and time fields in the General Configuration page.
