It is a common requirement to display information in a format we use daily to prevent misunderstandings. As a data visualization platform, SystemLink Server Dashboard supports the change of DateTime format for its components, such as graph tile.

DateTime format of SystemLink Server Dashboard is determined by the language used by the browser. This article will only show how this can be done using Google Chrome browser but a similar concept is applicable to all browsers.

  1. Open Google Chrome.
  2. Near the upper-right corner of Google Chrome, click the three vertical dots. A drop-down menu will be shown.
  3. In the drop-down menu, select Settings. This will open a new tab displaying the settings menu in Google Chrome. 
  4. In the menu on the left side, click Languages
  5. Click Add Languages
  6. Select your desired language from the list and click the three dots to the right of the new language. 
  7. Select Move to the top, and SystemLink Server Dashboard will display the DateTime format accordingly. 
  8. Refresh your SystemLink Server Dashboard tab, and its time-related information is updated to the desired DateTime format.
