      BUG::::Calendar in New EMail Portal

      Has anyone tried the calendar in the new EMail Portal (Google). I have been trying to create a birthday reminder for 04/08/2008 (August) but every time I try it it keeps changing it to 8/4/2008 (April), even if I select the correct date from the drop down it still changes it.



      If I select April 8 from the drop down then it gives me the correct info I want Aug 4

      I've tried altering setting for language to no avail
      This only seems to happen when the date is 12 or less

      I wish sites would use the universal date input method YYYYMMDD

      Not an expert, but I would assume it is the American date format?

      ie mm/dd/yyyy

      I can't speak for the Sky version (as I can't access it at present) but on google calendar you can click on settings and change not only the language format, but also the date format - US-style, UK-Style, or International.

      But that doesn't explain it not obeying the drop down box which displays a monthly calendar that you then pick a date from, and I had already tried altering the settings to English UK

      Oh. Sorry, you didn't mention you had changed the date format in settings. It works for me on both google and sky....

      I'd always left my gmail account in US format but I changed it today to test your problem. Changed no problem. Any new dates I create are shown in international date format.

      Did the same on Sky, same result.

      Can't offer any more help, sorry!
