How can I change the time format?

There was once a setting to change the time format to use actual time vs. "3 hours ago". Has it disappeared?

I can't find it anymore and am stuck with the frustrating "43 minutes ago" format. Nothing in account settings or anywhere else I looked.

    Sadly, there is no such setting after the migration.

    If memory serves, in AnswerHub there was some setting (not per user though) that controls relative vs absolute dates, but even this won't solve the problem, because the date/time that you get now (when you hover over a relative date/time) is not your system time, but is calculated from a certain timezone (in my case this means 2-3 hours difference from the actual).

    On top of that, Activity stream/notifications are developed by the SAP team, which means that even if the AH settings are changed, it will still have relative values.

    • Is it possible that you thought of the settings in SAP One Support Launchpad (from the user profile)?

      These are for absolute date/time format and timezone.

      Still, if you manage to find a super secret parameter that turns all relative dates on SC(N) into meaningful absolute values, please share :)
