Add YYYY-MM-DD as a date format option
I use YYYY-MM-DD up here in Canada so it'd be nice to have that as an option.
Moreso, it is the ISO dating standard. Support should be in every app that uses dates:
Generally happy with ToDoist, and already a premium user. There are some annoying differences in different areas of the program - especially around date/time.
The iPhone app takes DD/MM/YYYY. Reminder date format is MM/DD/YYYY.
Full support for YYYY-MM-DD across all features and interfaces would at least provide consistency.
Agreed, Todoist should support the ISO 8601 standard.
This says it all: http://xkcd.com/1179/
+1 for http://xkcd.com/1179/
Guys I think this is already supported on the Web app, just tested it now.
I just checked the web app and I only got the date formats "MM-DD-YYYY" and "DD-MM-YYYY"
I agree on the grounds that ISO 8601, xkcd, and Canada are awesome.
Please do this immediately. It should be so simple.
2014-01-25 at 1600 works fine.
What I'm missing would be something like
It works a valid date format when entering a date but it is my understanding that this thread is about having the dates displayed in the ISO 8601 format.
And again: http://xkcd.com/1179/
This would greatly add to simplicity and consistency
When I saw the options to display the date, I thought "of course I'll have it the ISO way, as I always do". Then I figured you must be trolling your users. Seriously!
This should be _very_ easy and quick to implement, no excuses.
Around the world, many different date formats are "common" and therefore difficult to normalize across borders with global teams. The solution that I find works best is the format of DD-Mon-YYYY where the month is always three alpha characters.
Today's date is 22-Jan-2014. No culture is confused by this.
This format should be one of the selections available.
I have to disagree with everyone who jumps in to say "please make format xyz available because I like it / I think it's good for everyone".
There is an ISO standard for a reason.
i'm voting for the ISO format yyyy-mm-dd.
The ISO standard sounds like a good idea for technical people and applications, but everyday people have no clue about the ISO standard.
No one will be confused by a display of 28-Feb-2014. Data entry is one issue, but display options should offer this one that is crystal clear.
I would like the ability to set YYYY-MM-DD format.
(Adding "Custom..." as the last option of the date format Settings dropdown might be a way to achieve this without anyone feeling excluded by the lack of their date format of choice.)
