Configure time and date formats

You can localize the formats that Confluence Cloud uses to display dates and times within the web interface. The settings use the syntax of Java's SimpleDateFormat class, as described in this document: Java SimpleDateFormat.

There are three time and date format settings:

  • Time format: Used when displaying only the time of day. For example, when a blog post is published. Example of configuration: h:mm a

  • Date time format: Used when displaying both the date and the time of day. For example, in historical versions of pages. Example of configuration: MMM dd, yyyy HH:mm

  • Date format: Used when displaying only the date. For example, the creation and most recent modification dates of pages. Example of configuration: MMM dd, yyyy

To change the time and date formats:

  1. If you aren’t already there, go to your Confluence Cloud site.

  2. Select the settings wheel () in the top right corner to open site settings.

  3. Select General Configuration from the sidebar (under Configuration).

  4. Select Edit.

  5. Enter the values for Time Format, Date Time Format and Date Format that suit your requirements.

  6. Select Save.
