    Date Field>>Properties>>Time>>Time Format: The 24 hours format is not correct.

    Asked by 45mip19lot on February 19, 2017 at 10:12 AM

    Your date format 24 hour in the drop down menu is wrong.

    In the current design, if you select 24 hour format, the drop down options list 0-9 as a single digit.

    This causes confusion because the 24 hour format is designed to stop any ambiguity between am and pm.

    For example:

    4 oclock in the afternoon is displayed as 16:00 & 4 0clock in the morning should be displayed as 04:00


    12 hour format is 4:00am & 4:00pm


    Your 24 hour format displays the early morning hours as 4:00, 7:00 etc, which to the untrained eye could be perceived as 4pm, 7pm etc

    To correct this, you need to add a zero to the am digits.




    Thanks, Mike
