Date Format(s)


Recommended Posts

Could you use a calendar for Date Issued (Variety Info tab)

or better (fewer clicks)
Might you support various date formats, via coded transformations of stored data perhaps.
I understand that this is an American product with [mm]/[dd]/[yyyy] format - or I think it does : I can't tell if dates have been internationalised for say Britons using [dd]/[mm]/[yyyy] formatting.  
As I collect from various foreign suppliers, I use the International Standard (ISO) format [yyyy][mm][dd]

Date Bought and Date Sold kindly supply a calendar - an added click, but it helps

(if not also Variety Info's Created and Last Modified data.

Could you change the Date example on the Variety Info window as well to something that will help those outside the USA?  Something like 01/23/2021.
01/10/2021 could be either 1 October or January 10.  01/23/2021 can only be January 23.

I am an American who works internationally.  European dates pop into my brain before American dates.
I work building digital libraries.  ISO dates pop up even before European dates.
I am forever perplexed by dates in SM.  Please take pity.
