    Error with "invalid" date

    Asked by gives on February 12, 2016 at 01:52 PM


    I keep receiving this "error perhaps" after I type in a date. I am doing it in the correct format, I just don't understand why it won't read it as valid. Nor will it save. It keeps saying "no limit" after I close settings.


    Thank you for your help!

    Hi there,

    You are getting the alert because the date entered is not in the format expected in the field. The format is as follow: 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm'. For example, 5:30 must be entered as 05:30 to be a valid format.

    Please enter the date as: 2016-02-25 08:00. It should accept it just fine.
