Step 2: How do I Change how the Time & Date Displays in Pet Sitter Plus?
 

Tammy's software is pre-configured to show am and pm times, but she prefers to confirm service times using the 24-hour clock (Military time). She also prefers to display the year as just "17" rather than "2017".

 

3. Choose "24-hour format" from the dropdown by "Time Format" to change your time settings to the 24-hour clock (Military Time), so "1.00pm" now displays as "13:00".

 

4. Choose "mm/dd/yy" from the dropdown by "Date Format" to change your date settings so "06/28/2019" now displays as "06/28/19".

If you look at the service order you created for Linda Macauley, you will see the original date & time settings displaying, eg. "07/01/19" and the time as "2:00pm-4:00pm".

With the changes, you will see the date & time settings displaying in their new format, eg. "07/01/19" and the time as "14:00-16:00".
