How can we improve Hootsuite?

24h clock

I'd like to have an option to change the timestamp format from 12 to 24 hours (streams and schedule), sometimes i still get confused by that as it's not my country default date format. Not much a problem, but it would be nice

        Any plans to add this? It's crazy to have 'some' 24h support, for example uploading a spreadsheet of scheduled tweets uses 24h, but elsewhere in Hootsuite it's all 12h.

        Yesterday I meant to send something out at 3 PM and it went out at 3 AM. My mistake, yes, but a mistake I would not have made with a 24-hour time format system in place. To genuinely ask, how difficult would this be to add to the code on the site to make a 24-hour time format a reality?

        24h is must have. I won't consider the pro version until its implemented. AM / PM is confusing us European (non UK) customers.

        find the scheduler very tricky, it is not always obvious if it is am or pm. Can I suggest to your technical team that they re-programme to 24 hour clock, i.e 8:30 in the evening is 20:30, and then we know that 8;30 is actually am. I guess we have to suffer the weird date format that the USA use but the clock thing is pretty universal.

        I have had problems because of the AM / PM timing, Please add the choice of schedule 24h (13h, 14h, 20h, etc.)

        This is crucial for me, too many errors made by not being familiar with the am/pm.
        Also the possibility to have Monday as first day of the week.

        Please add 24hour timings... I scheduled a tweet for 12:05am... when i meant pm, 24hour would ensure that this doesn't happen again.

        So... "Under review" for four years now. Please add 24h clock -- AM/PM is really US-only friendly.

        Very needed! Please implement this soon, it's driving me a little crazy.

        This would make it clearer and quicker to schedule and review upcoming posts at a glance, rather than always having to check if a time refers to am or pm. 24 hour time isn't even my local default country format, but being able to use it would save me a lot of time when using Hootsuite.

        We tought that the problem was the year 2000 but, hootsuite is showing us that the real millenium bug is the 12/24h clocks!
        Thanks god you don't force us to use the US customary system too...

      • GenevièveGeneviève commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        P l e a s e, implement this soon.

        You could also make it an option in the preferences to have the AM/pm or the 24 hour clock.

        Or, at the very least, please improve the contrasts on the AM/PM button so that we absolutely know which one is active.
