Entering dates and times
|Top Previous Next|
In most places where you choose a date, you are either given a drop down list, or a calendar pop up which will format the date for you. If you are entering a date somewhere that is free text, use dashes to separate the day, month and year. Use the format mm-dd-yyyy for American or dd-mm-yyyy for European.
WorkSchedule.Net allows flexible entry of times.
For standard "am/pm" time, the entry is not case sensitive, and you can just use a "p" or an "a" to indicate "am" or "pm". If no "am" or "pm" indication is given, WorkSchedule.Net assumes you mean am.
Examples of valid formats: "6 pm", "6:00 pm", "6:00p", "6"
Examples of invalid formats: "600"
WorkSchedule.Net handles military time slightly differently from the common way of denoting military, in that WorkSchedule.Net uses a colon to separate the hours from the minutes. This is done for readability. You must use a colon or the time will not be recognized as valid.
Examples of valid formats: "11:00", "11"
Examples of invalid formats: "1100"
