How to set Date and Time fields

Chronosly Support Dept. receive many forms asking and requesting help related to events, being the most common that the event does not display as it is set up in date-time settings.
After analysing the problem, we have found out that many of those misfunctions come from setting wrong date-time formats.
Find below a basic guide How to avoid your events not dislplaying on your page.

 

 

SET CORRECT DATE FORMATS

Both parameters FROM and TO have to be set (even if single day), if not it may cause some event misfunctions.

Correct Date (both from-to fields) - Date format Events set up
Correct Date format (both from-to fields)

 

Wrong Date format (Blank fields) - Events set up
Wrong Date set up (Missing TO field)

 

 

SET CORRECT DATE FORMATS

- Set HOUR  both parameters (hour and minute) using format hh:mm

- Set time format 24hours (e.g 1pm is 13:00)

- 12am as "00" "00" and 12pm as "12" "00"
- 1am as "01" "00" and 1pm as "13" "00"
- 8am as "08" "00" and 8pm as "20" "00"

 

-  Parameters like AM or PM within time fields are NOT ALLOWED!

 

- ALL DAY EVENTS - Set All day events leaving HOUR fields FROM/TO  "blank".

Don't leave Minutes fields empty

For "o'clock" time include "00" in minutes fields.
