I would like to see a date format option that eliminates possible confusion:  ddmmmyyyy  31dec2017 or to better match Andre's: yyyymmmdd

I am glad that yyyymmdd date format will be available.

Does Wrike have plans to support it?

I do need to have another option for date format YYYY-MM-DD (I think that what André suggested).  This would allow me to sort task by title when I have date in the title.  I have tasks created through Request Form that have date  as part of the title.

Date format should be a user preference. I am in Europe and use the DDMMYYYY format.

I'd like a different date format as teams from UK and US both use this system, so it would just be clearer to be able to spell out the month or at least have the abbreviated month.

I agree, being able to spell out or abbreviate the month eliminates confusion. Basically, give dates the flexibility to be in a format that is best for the user.

The ability to define the date format at multiple levels is necessary for global teams:

  • As a user level preference based on geographic settings (not at account level) 
  • To choose the format in specific tables (requiring the ability to format default fields)
  • To choose the format at report level - so that if dd/mm/yyyy or mm/dd/yyyy is specific to a user the dd-Month (e.g. 15 Nov) can be selected at report level

Otherwise I have users exporting to Excel so that the date columns can be re-formatted before sharing with colleagues.

Thanks

I agree with André Sabosch, the international date format is: YYYY/MM/DD wich should be standard or at least an option.

I agree! I vote for user selectable or at least, YYYY-MM-DD that is sortable.

I agree with Stuart Allaway. Since every user can choose its own language and timezone at user-profile level, the date format should be there as well. Changing it at Admin level doesn't support worldwide distributed teams causing confusion about deadlines.

It would be great if this was a feature that you could add per user account. I am a UK employee currently using the US account set up, seems odd that I can adjust my timezone but not my preferences.

In Japan, "yyyymmdd" is a common format, so please add it!

For japan yyyymmdd is the standard format and is a requirement, please prioritize this as it is difficult to build presentations and reports for Japanese companies.

Please add yyyymmdd as an option. This is a significant usability issue that adds frustration for many users in the international community. This seems like low hanging fruit for the Wrike Dev team...
