Day First or Month First? You Decide

Which looks right to you?

29/10/2008 or 10/29/2008

Determining whether the month or the day should come first in a date is not very difficult to do. If you live in the U.S., the month comes first – if you live pretty much anywhere else, the day comes first. As with other things like feet and meters, here in the U.S. we seem to do things a little bit ‘differently’. With customers of TSheets ranging the whole world over, we’ve had numerous requests from clients for the ability to display dates in the ‘right’ format.

Now you can do so. If you’d like to see your dates with the day first rather than the month, open up My Account from the main interface. There, you’ll see a choice between a middle endian date format (MM/DD/YYYY) and a little endian date format (DD/MM/YYYY). Save the changes and you’ll see the new date format reflected throughout TSheets.

Date Format

Curious to see who else in the world treats a date like the U.S.? Check out the list here.
