    Different date formats for different users?

    Simon Hogg

      We are looking at rolling out Qlik Sense for a Global Audience. Our American users are used to using mm-dd-yyyy as a date format, whereas Europeans are using dd-mm-yyyy.  The data is all loaded into QlkSense in only one format.

       

      What is a good way to deal with showing each group of users a filter box in their preferred format?  I don't really want to start re-training a nation on how to enter dates.

       

      Can we do something with the user's LDAP/ADS profile (if UserOffice = Chicago then DateFormat=mm-dd-yyyy) or do we have to get into publishing different versions of the data for the different audiences?

       

      Many thanks in advance for sharing your experiences.
