Is there any way to change the user interface design to enter time as 24-hour/Military time instead of AM/PM?

Hi Erik,


Just to add some background to Colin's reply, the time UI uses the locale to determine which format to use. We currently have two open enhancement requests that would enable this functionality. One to add a 24hr appearance for dateTime questions, and one to honour the device time format.


Another workaround is to change to a locale code that uses 24hr clock which works well for time question types, but this obviously impacts other question types (eg calendar language for dateTime questions etc.). Here is a link to Multiple Language Support in the doc, and I've attached a simple example just using a time question type.


Regards,

Brett

Hi Erik,

If you are using Survey 123 connect I believe there is a configuration setting to display your date/time field in 24hr format (i.e. hh:mm:ss). Check out the highly detailed post on Dates and Time in Survey123 for ArcGIS for instructions on how to do so. If you are using the Survey 123 website or the Survey 123 field app, you should check if configuring your device date time settings to 24hr format helps display it that way as well. If you are displaying the data in ArcGIS Online from those applications you can manipulate the time display on the time field in the Configure Attributes window from the Configure Popup settings.

Best, 

Colin

Thanks for the information Colin and Brett.

Specifically, I'm using Connect and the field type dateTime. I'm wondering if the hh:mm am/pm spinner wheel that is part of the dateTime UI can be changed to a 24 hour spinner wheel. I see that there is some flexibility with formatting the time if is just a time field, but I haven't come across information if the same is possible with dateTime. Brett, is that functionality what you are referring to when you said the following?

Hi Erik,

Yes, that's the enhancement I referred to. Changing the appearance of the dateTime UI to a 24hr spinner wheel.

I am also looking for a way to change the appearance of the dateTime UI, on a question set up in Suervey 123 Connect, into a 24-hour spinner wheel. Is there somewhere I can check up on the status of this enhancement? 

Thanks
