Replace weekdays in due dates with dates

Hi folks,
I wonder how can I replace weekdays in Due Dates with regular dates. Asana materials often discuss time-consuming switching between apps. But with that weekday format I always have to open my Windows calendar app to get to know which date is the upcoming Friday… This is very annoying. Is there any option to change this setting?
Thank you

Hi @Stepan_Konev, welcome to the Asana Community forum :wave:t2:

While this isn’t possible right now, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:

This may be mentioned in other posts, but I can not find them.
The way Asana handles date formats is very annoying

The use of today and weekdays does not add to readablity.
A difference between the dates from this year and next year adds to the chaos.

Any updates on the progress of date formating? It’s confusing for our team to see “Today” “Wednesday” “May 15”…


@Elesha_Barnette thank you for bringing this topic back under the attention of the powers that be at Asana.

Hopefully the Asana team will see that an obvious way to write clearer and more detailed tasks is not only the text formatting possibilities but also giving users thé options to choose a dateformat.

As it is, I’m happy that Asana does allow us Europeans to use the metric system. :rofl:

For sure! This platform is nearly perfect (in my humble opinion) but a few tweaks here and there would go a long way. I think they could kill the other platforms with some small adjustments (like proofing :melting_face:).

Hi Rebecca,

Is there any update on this?
