Use an unambiguous date format


I struggle with dates such as on the Developer Portal. For example. looking to see when a certificate expires, it says “Wed 09/01/2022 13:00 +0100”, is that 9th January 2022, or 1st September 2022? If it’s picking up my locale settings, it should be 9th January, but it isn’t.

I would like to suggest that ambiguity is removed, and displayed dates are shown using ISO 8601 format. This is an agreed international standard that many developers are familiar with.

Using my example, the date would become “2022-01-09T13:00:00+01:00”. It may not look as pretty, but it’s clearer to understand.
