    Hi AC, any indication on the level of difficulty to implement this? It's been a long time coming. Feature: Store settings: [Set Store Timezone] Cheers

    ...and also: Feature: Store settings : [Set Date Format] i.e. dd/MM/yyyy instead of MM/dd/yyyy

    This would be a great add. My main issue is around reporting. My stores are in Australia so, so a new reporting day begins about half way through the physical day.

    We should also be able to set the time zone on a per store basis as we have a store for USA, NZ, UK etc...

    There must be a good reason why Americommerce hasn't made this change but I'm hoping they can find a solution. We have cutoff times that our customers can place an order to have it shipped that day and we have to do the math to make sure we get those orders out as promised.

    We would also like to be able to set our store to reflect the time zone that we are in. We promise same day shipping on orders with express shipping placed before noon, so having the time that orders were placed at be in our time zone would be very helpful. We would prefer for our shippers to not have to do math to figure out what time orders were placed at because this adds even more possibility of human error to the shipping process.

    progress has been made with recent update https://support.americommerce.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360049157293-2020-3-Release-3-2020-4-Release-1-2-3-  "Added formatting setting to all ##DATE merge codes" ...but now need the timezone offset capability to be added to that new date formatting... i.e. implement this method: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.timezoneinfo.converttimebysystemtimezoneid?view=netcore-3.1#System_TimeZoneInfo_ConvertTimeBySystemTimeZoneId_System_DateTime_System_String_System_String_

    It is not in our Store Info > Advanced, do we need to do anything to see this option?

    Ricardo,

    My guess would be your store has not been updated to 2020.5 yet.  I know ours has not been.  You can check the software version your store is using by going to https://[YOUR DOMAIN NAME]/store/sitemonitor.aspx or adding the script I wrote to the footer of your theme: https://support.americommerce.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360025950474-PUPT-Show-the-Version-of-the-AmeriCommerce-software-your-site-is-running-in-your-browsers-console

    Josh/Ricardo: You can also add a shortcut in chrome/edge with this javascript (a bookmarklet), this will pop up the version in a quick javascript alert:

    javascript:(function()%7B(function()%7Bvar r %3D new XMLHttpRequest()%3Br.open("GET"%2C "%2Fstore%2Fsitemonitor.aspx"%2C true)%3Br.onreadystatechange %3D function () %7Bif (r.readyState !%3D 4 %7C%7C r.status !%3D 200) return%3Bvar data %3D r.responseText.split("%26")%3Bvar obj %3D %7B%7D%3Bfor(var i %3D0%2C l%3Ddata.length%3B i < l%3B i%2B%2B)%7Bvar key %3D data%5Bi%5D.split("%3D")%5B0%5D%3Bvar val %3D data%5Bi%5D.split("%3D")%5B1%5D%3Bobj%5Bkey%5D %3D val%3B%7Dalert("Version%3A " %2B obj%5B"Code Version"%5D)%3B%7D%3Br.send()%3B%7D)()%7D)()
