How can I force the default datetime format for all new activity entries?

Hi @Wu, Robert   I know exactly what you mean...

You can use automation to timestamp things, for example:

when a comment is posted to a card, post a comment "comment {commentlink} posted on {date} at {time}"

The only caveat is that it obviously involves a bit of double posting. 


There is a more complicated way using the Trello API where you could get the Trello Automation to edit the comment to include the timestamp in the text but it is quite a few steps and semi-advanced stuff

Hey @Wu, Robert! I don't think I'm following you correctly. Are you referring to the date format shown on your card for all the activities that happened? Or are you referring to someplace else on Trello? I want to be sure I'm on the same page here. Thanks!
