What format can I enter dates and times in?

Remember The Milk supports a number of date and time formats to save you time when entering due dates. To change your preference between International and American-style dates:

  1. Open the web app or desktop app.
  2. Click on the 'Settings gear' at the top right.
  3. Click on Account settings.
  4. Locate the Time Format option, and choose the appropriate setting.
  5. Click the Save changes button.

Following are examples of the ways that you can input dates and times. Many other formats work too, so if you're not sure, just try it out!
