Information on Date/Time/Number Preferences in Sage CRM

By | March 9, 2016

Date Preferences:
A Date is made of three elements namely Month, Date and Year and we can set combinations depending on country to have a date format. Example MM/DD/YY.
Sage CRM has different date formats which user can set for his own instance in User Preferences. Once user selects date format, all the date fields in CRM shows date in selected date format.
