    Is it possible to set the and in JIRA OnDemand?

    1. Hi there,

      These settings are not available in JIRA OnDemand.



      1. Is this still the case? The date picker uses day/month/year which is not the standard in the US, and we'd like to change it.

      2. Okay, this is going on year three now and I still can't change the date format in the calendar drop-downs to anything else than 'dd/mm/yy' and (most annoyingly) AM/PM time format... (In the Log Work dialog - Date Started field.)

  2. I'm not sure these settings are still the same, but my issue is slightly different. How do I configure so that within the issue it will display both the date and time? Currently I only see the date despite having date and time configured in the 'Look and Feel'?

  3. These instructions do not seem to alter the date format displayed by the sprint range on the Plan page of the project. Is there some way to change the date format for the sprints?
