Date format question RRS feed

  • Question

  •   Would you be able to change the date format in the Gantt Chart view to show the day of the week?  Currently it just shows the date and I find it very convenient to have the day of the week in the display as well.  Can that be changed??

  • Hi,

    sorry, it is not possible to configure the date format.

    If it is an urgent request, you could think about creating formula fields on Project and/or Task level (the latter with "Roll down unless manually specified) and add these fields to appropriate views. Keep in mind, that too many formula fields may decrease performance. The formula could look like this: ProjDateConv([Start],pjDate_ddd_mm_dd_yy)

    Does that help?

  • The date format is controlled by the regional settings for your PWA site.

    In Project Online, you can choose another reginal setting (country) and get another format, but it’s not possible to customize the date formats.

  • You can change format for regional setting - you can't configure to display weekday by doing so.
