You may find dates within Commusoft appearing in a format that you didn't initially choose. If, for example, you use UK dates traditionally (dd/mm/yyyy), but you've been seeing US formatted dates instead (mm/dd/yyyy), this will most likely be due to your time and date setting stored within your web browser. They are normally connected to the language settings within your browser. These can sometimes default to English US rather than English UK. The following brief guides will show you how to change this setting within various internet browsers - though we do recommend using Google Chrome with Commusoft where possible.
The time and date settings for Google Chrome can be found by using the menu icon (three dots in the top-right) and opening the Chrome settings. From here, scroll down to the bottom of the page and open the 'Advanced' section of the settings. Within this section, you will find the language options (above). Choose 'English (United Kingdom) as your default to ensure that the dates presented in Commusoft will appear in the UK format.
In Firefox, you can change your language setting by using the menu icon (three horizontal lines in the top-right corner) and going to 'Options'. From here, simply scroll down to the 'Language' section and choose English (United Kingdom). If it is not immediately available, you can select 'Search for more languages) from the dropdown menu and locate UK English through there.
Safari & Microsoft Edge:
These browsers are connected to the language settings of your actual PC or Mac computer. If you're on a PC, you can edit/change these by going to your Windows settings and going into the 'Time & Language' section. Under a heading called 'Related settings', you will be able to edit the 'Date, time & regional formatting':
On a Mac using Safari, this can be done through your system preferences. Open the system preferences page and select the 'Language & Region' option. You can choose the language to use on specific apps using the 'Apps' tab (next to the 'General' language options), meaning you can assign Safari to be in English (United Kingdom) format without changing the default settings for Safari in general. Simply select the application (Safari) and assign the language, then hit save:
