    Hey Ryszard,

    It is possible within a widget to set the date time format by clicking the calendar looking icon on a date dimension. 

     

     

    If this isn't what you are asking about then I think I'm a little unclear on your ask.

    You could leave the dates as date objects and modify the x-axis using a widget script, like is shown here

    Well, I am sure there are workarounds possible. However, why not to add this rather basic functionality? It is supported out-of-the-box in other BI tools (PowerBI, Tableau, etc.)

    Absolutely Ryszard. 

    We have a forum for ideas here: https://support.sisense.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/201196008-Ideas. It is a better place to post your request and future product ideas. I just wanted to propose a few more workarounds to help solve your case with what we have now.

    Oh, I see. I just looked in the Ideas and apparently there is a ~4 year old request along these lines, which is marked completed. Is there a way to open it? I do not really see this as a completed.

    I think the request was specifically referring to the ability to break out fields in dates my hours and minutes as opposed to days. 

    If you find that that isn't quite what you are looking for, you could make a new post and reference the old one and talk about the additional functionality you would want added.

    Yes please.. I want to be able to sort a table by date, then time. not just by date or just by time. I also don't want to have two separate columns - one for date and one for time. Why not just let me show both beside each other?

    I have tried custom formatting with date and time, but it either shows the time as 00:00 or the date as 1970.

    I just want to be able to include BOTH in the same column!

     

    EDIT: Found you created a post in the Idea forum for this. Cross posted there. https://support.sisense.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360035065954-Add-Support-For-Standard-Date-Time-Formatting?page=1
