      Status Update

      We’ve now addressed this in the new issue view!

      • When the date of the action is <= 7 days ago, you’ll be able to switch between relative and absolute formats by clicking on the timestamp.
      • When the date of the action is > 7 days ago, it will always show the timestamp in absolute format, as per our design guidelines.

      If you don’t have the new issue view yet, you can try it out by clicking on your avatar > Personal settings then turning on New Jira issue view under Labs. For more info, check out The new Jira issue view.

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Cloud. Using JIRA Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Relative time displays (e. g. in 3 days). It is a nice feature. But there can be dates where it is important to see the exact date and time. For instance flight datetime. It is a pitty that this feature can only be disable globally (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Disable+relative+dates+in+JIRA+applications).

      My suggestion and wich is to makes this configurable per custom field or field configuration, whether relative dats should be displayed or not. E. g. as option in in field renderer which seems *not *to be available for date custom fields now.
