Hi, 

I seem to be wasting a lot of time trying to find an answer to these two questions. 

I just need to set the date format to standard European DDMMYY

And I need my standard European week to start on a Monday. 

How do I do that? I cannot find this in any setting. 

Many thanks, 

Jason

Hey Jason, 

I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify :)

Im afraid that at this time, there wouldn't be a way to make that change in our Shopify admin. The way dates are shown and the day of the week that a week will start on are all set to the same thing for Shopify stores all over the world. 

That said, I can definitely see how this would be beneficial, considering people all over the world have different formatting. I would love to pass this feedback along to our team of developers for you and open up a feature request. Can you tell me the URL of your store so I can add it to the request? That way the team can track how many people a change like this would benefit. 

Let me know :) 

Have a great one,
Ann

Hi Ann,

Thanks for your reply,

It is rather important for all sorts of reasons, especially client correspondance and accounting, but day to day it is just confusing and can be alarming to read the wrong date. 09/08/18...Is it next week, is it in a month?

Many thanks.

Jason

Heya, did this ever get implemented?

 

Seems arrogant to hold the whole world to a time standard that isn't common...

No one is being held to any time standard.

 

Liquid comes with a date filter that will let you adjust things to however you need with a little bit of code editing:

Are there any instructions for this, where do we add this code to change the date format?

 

How do we do it DD-MM-YYYY?
