Note: This release is in preview. Features described here don’t become generally available until the latest general availability date that Salesforce announces for this release. Before then, and where features are noted as beta, pilot, or developer preview, we can’t guarantee general availability within any particular time frame or at all. Make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available products and features.

Go Global with New International Date and Time Formats (Pilot)

To help you do business wherever you are and give your customers the best experience possible, we’re adopting the internationally standardized formats for dates and times provided by the International Components for Unicode (ICU). ICU sets the international standard for these formats in just about every locale you can think of. We’re not switching everything over to these new formats just yet, but you can get in on the ground floor by joining our ICU Pilot Program. With these new formats, you get a consistent experience across the entire Salesforce platform and improved integration with ICU-compliant applications across the globe.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce app in all editions, except Database.com.

Note

Note

We provide ICU locale formats to selected customers through a pilot program that requires agreement to specific terms and conditions. To be nominated to participate in the program, contact your Success Manager or log a case. Pilot programs are subject to change, and we can’t guarantee acceptance. ICU locale formats aren’t generally available unless or until Salesforce announces its general availability in documentation or in press releases or public statements. We can’t guarantee general availability within any particular time frame or at all. Make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available products and features. You can provide feedback and suggestions for ICU locale formats by clicking ? and selecting Give Feedback about Salesforce.

How: You can join the ICU pilot program today by contacting your Success Manager or by logging a case in https://help.salesforce.com/home.
