I realise that this has been asked a few times but I can't seem to get to resolution having read through previous advice. We have scheduled tasks set up to automatically e-mail users/managers of their account expiry. The attribute in the e-mail is %accountexpiry% which formats to US. This is causing confusion as dates can be misintepreted. Is there any way I can manually change this? The formatting options I've seen in other posts simply haven't worked.

I've checked all the date/time region settings on all servers currently using Adaxes. They're all set to UK.

The attribute in the e-mail is %accountexpiry% which formats to US.

There is no property named accountexpiry. If we understand your requirement correctly, it should be accountExpires in your case.

Is there any way I can manually change this?

Have a look at section Date/time formatting of the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/ValueReferences/#date-time-format. You will have something like the following:



Apologies, I did mean %AccountExpires%. I'll give the formatting a try, thank you.

As you can see in the picture, we currently have three different formats as soon as we look at a user's data. Can this be adjusted so that only one format dd.mm.yyyy is displayed? Thank you very much

It would be good to have a selectable column for the tasks schedule pane. This would allow us to easily show tasks scheduled dates and give us the ability to sort by the ... case it would be good to sort all of these password resets by their scheduled date.

I would like to query the "Account Expires" field and output it as the default entry in description but I prefer the format Jun 7 2013 and not 06/07/13. There are just too many ways to understand 06/07/13 with staff from every imaginable country. Any ideas?
