SiteScope (2020.05) Alerts Date and Time Format Customization
Dear SiteScope Community,
I have a few questions regarding the following more or less cosmetic issue (at least) with the SiteScope alerts and related e-mail templates respectively:
1. Only today I noticed the following passage in the SiteScope's 'Use Manual', under Alerts -> 'Customize Alert Templates' -> 'How to Customize Email Alert with the MM/DD/YYYY format':
Do I understand it correctly: an existing date tag (i.e. <time-date>?) within (any) selected e-mail template should be replaced with the <eur-date> tag? And what happens then??
I didn't get any different date format in my test alert with that new tag, I'm afraid! I still get plain US format, e.g. for a present day, October 5 2020, with the mentioned tag replacement:
Time: 11:15 AM
We would prefer the following date format: 05/10/2020 (and possibly 24-hour time format as well!)
2. There is some older support article (or tip) related to the similar question(s) here:
I'm afraid those instructions are of no impact and use either:
- We use a non-US locale (i.e. Slovenian precisely) on our SiteScope server all along, but all dates ever generated within SiteScope components only used a default US date (&time) format! These lines are the excerpt from our running master.config configuration:
_localMachineNetTimeFormat=d.M.yyyy hh:mm aa
So, any suggestions on what am I missing here, perhaps?
Walked the deserts, swam the shores, many ways in which I've grown.
I hope you are fine.
Regarding your questions, the only thing that I see different is the following: _localMachineNetTimeFormat = d.M.yyyy hh: mm yy when the other forum comments that the format is the following: _localMachineNetTimeFormat = d / M / yyyy hh: mm yy. You could try that way, save changes, restart the SiteScope service and validate the change.
If I remember correctly you could try this parameter in master config
<currentTime> -> 2020/07/01 08:54:13
Or this one:
<currentTime> = 2020/07/01 09:08:54:324
Hope this helps....
