Please replace weekdays with dates (or let users choose)

I found several posts on the forum where people plead to replace weekdays with dates.

Users want this in due dates, comments, etc.

I prefer seeing a real date instead of “Tomorrow”, “Monday” … I can imagine that others prefer it the way it is now.

So Asana should offer a choice. In General Settings (for the domain) one should be able to set a preference for weekdays or real dates. This setting should be used througout Asana (like in task history, due dates, etc).

@Herve_Buisset (and others interested in this),

Please also consider voting for my proposal here:

I believe it must be an Asana design principle to limit use of settings (to simplify for both users and themselves) for better or worse. My proposal doesn’t require a setting so perhaps could be an easier request.



Please allow us to configure whether we see the day of week or the date! This is really making it hard for me to use Asana for all the reasons others have listed above.

The user should definitely be able to choose. Some in our group trying to set dates found the lack of choice very off-putting and surprising for a modern app.

I love Asana but I hate that you can’t change due date formatting…it is chaotic seeing “tomorrow” or “Tuesday” instead of seeing an actual date.

Asana, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give us this option.
Our projects revolve around tracking actual dates!
