The USA uses the date format month/day/year but the rest of the world uses day/month/year. Is there any way for we aliens to change the format, or substitute the name of the month for the numeral, throughout our class site? It would help avoid a lot of confusion. Thanks!

We've changed the format for various countries requesting it yes. I'll forward this to Programming and ask them to put in the correct date format for South Africa.

Oops, I stand corrected, we hadn't updated the date format in the past, we had updated various wording for other countries, such as changing "Message Center" to "Message Centre". Word from Programming is changing the date format system wide is a far more complex task. So while we will do this and other things to accommodate more countries in the future, for the moment we have to put it on the backburner as we're currently in the midst of a significant system restructuring and other improvements.

That's the one that will be completed in 10 weeks, right, Brad? Wink
