We definitely know dates are an issue and we know a lot of the world uses a different layout. We will be addressing this in the coming months. It’s a fairly in depth thing to tackle, so it’ll take some time, but we know it’s important and wanted.
This is just part of a company and product growing. Other options are not releasing Coda to the rest of the world until we get things up and running here, but that isn’t productive either. We know this is a priority and we’ll get there. I don’t have an ETA, but this is definitely a priority.
There are a lot of reasons for things being built the way they are, from what code libraries are available and which ones fit in with our current code base to the fact that we’re a U.S. company and had to start with what our initial customers were using.
This is something we’re keeping an eye on and will be looking to work on at some point. It really is a pretty complex thing and will need to wait until we can dedicate engineering time to it. It’s not forgotten, we just happen to still be growing the product.
Thanks. I think my frustration is having worked on a project that looked at the use and non-use of open standards and how not using these standards causes long term problems and added work. I think I’ll add this to the list of examples
Is there any update on this? It’s been nearly 2 years since I raised it and over a year since your last response. I just created a planning table and am already getting confused because it’s suggesting I start on the 12th March, rather than 3rd December.
I need to check it out but it looks like Coda may have made a couple of changes related to it Launched: Choose your own first day of the week I’m hoping that choosing the day of the week to start on is the first step towards defauilt date format options.
Come on CODA!
Just started with CODA yesterday and it is not the best of first impressions. I thought I was being thick for not finding this setting. And now finding out it is more than a year since this was highlighted (as if it needed be) and it was still not solved. It shows a lack of commitment for growth outside of the US.
Ok this is causing me a real problem. I’m importing a spreadsheet from Google and having in sync to Coda via one of the packs and the date format is really screwing with Coda. Luckily it looks like putting the original into ISO format cleared things up but I’d rather not have to deal with the faff.
It’s 2.5 years (or about 950 days for you Americans who like to mess around with dating conventions), what’s the update?
