Localization Customization

The Localization Customization allows administrators to customize the way dates are shown.

Changing the date format in Plutora also changes it for Plutora Test and vice versa. For Plutora Test’s localization customization, see Manage Localization in Plutora Test.

Localization Customization was renamed from Date Format Customization in December 2016.

No calculation is performed to localize data, so all data must be entered in a valid format. For example, if users type or paste a number containing a comma into a field, they will be asked to re-enter the number.

To choose Localization formats:

  1. Go to Settings > Customization > Site Settings.
  2. Click Localization.
  3. Manage Date Format:
    1. Click to select one of the following buttons:
      • MM/DD/YYYY: Month/Day/Year – USA date format.
      • DD/MM/YYYY: Day/Month/Year – UK, India, Latin America, Oceania date format.
      • YYYY/MM/DD: Year/Month/Day – ISO 8601 date format.
        Plutora and Plutora Test use UTC dates. Also see, Where Is The Time Zone Set?
