    Set time to default to PM but leave AM option

    Asked by coldboyallen on March 29, 2016 at 08:32 PM

    For scheduling purposes, most of our events (over 400) start in the PM. How can I set the default start time to PM BUT STILL LEAVE AM AS AN OPTION? Please let me know if this is possible!

     

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, we do not have an option that allows you to set the default AM or PM in the Time field.

    There are possible ways to make this work though. Here are some workarounds:

    1. If your event starts in the afternoon or in the evening, you can set the default time to past 12 noon, or anything between 12:00-23:59, that will automatically set your time to PM. Here's a screenshot of it:

     

    The logic is that PM starts 12:00 in the 24 Hour format, which is the allowed to be set in the default Time.

     

    2. Another possible workaround is to embed your form's full source code into your web page and set the AM/PM to your own default.

    Let us know if that works.
