    • We collect Jira feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

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

      Currently JIRA by default displays all dates relative to when they occurred, as per the below screenshot:

      This can be configured on a system-wide basis to be displayed as an actual date:

      It can be configured instance-wide by setting the below in the $JIRA_HOME/jira-config.properties file as per How to edit the jira-config.properties file:

      jira.lf.date.relativize = false

      This would be great to have editable in individual User Preferences and also in the global default preferences (similar to the functionality that autowatch uses).
