Event Date Format Nudges




In Preceden the Event Date Format determines the format of the dates on your timeline. By default this is set to Unformatted which means Preceden will use format you used when specifying the event's dates. However, it's easy to be inconsistent, using 12 Oct 2021 in some places and 10/21/21 in others, which winds up look odd when displayed on a timeline:

To nudge more folks to set an Event Date Format, the event dialog will now show a notice on timelines with 5+ events that don't have a format set:

That "Set it now" link will take you straight to the Date Format appearance settings where you can set a format:

Setting this will result in consistently formatted dates in your timeline:
