    Times between 24:00 and 24:59

    • Product:  Alma



    In the job history we see strange times between 24:00 and 24:59.


    What does a time 1 March 24:30 mean? Is it in the first hour of 1 March or after midnight and actually on 2 March?


    1 March 24:30 is the same as 1 March 00:30.

    You may change the time format from displaying times between 01:00 and 24:59 to displaying times 00:00 to 23:59:


    1. Configuration > General > General Configuration > Other Settings > system_time_format

    2. Update time format from kk:mm:ss to HH:mm:ss

    Note that this will change the display of times in your job history. It will not cause any functional change.
