Date Formats

Dates are displayed in one of three primary formats, depending on the context:

  1. Relative
    This is the preferred format to display dates. Depending on the event's relation to the present time, this may take one of several wordings. When using this format, be sure that the phrase has proper grammar when read in context.
  2. Concise
    This short format is used whenever horizontal space is constrained and the date must be as narrow as possible.
  3. Machine Format
    This is the most technically accurate format. It is used for data tables, query run information, and other scenarios where technical accuracy is important.
