This article applies to the Admin Console > General > Culture Settings.
The Culture Settings give administrators control over formats and symbols that vary amongst geographic location. These settings can be overwritten for a specific user or group of users by modifying the Role. For more information see Roles.
The following settings are available:
The format of date values. May be any .NET standard (e.g., MM/dd/yyyy).
The format of time values. May be any .NET standard (e.g., h:mm:ss tt).
The format of date-time values. May be any .NET standard (e.g. M/d/yy h:mm tt).
For more information on .NET Date, Time, and DateTime format strings please visit this MSDN article.
Date Time Values Treated As
Choose to format DateTime as Date or DateTime values. To change this setting for specific columns see Column Metadata.
Column metadata will override culture settings.
Numeric Separator Symbol
Symbol used to separate 3 digit groups (ex. thousandths) in numeric values. The default is a comma (,).
Numeric Currency Symbol
Symbol prepended to numeric values to represent currency. The default is the US currency symbol ($).
Numeric Decimal Symbol
Symbol used for numeric decimal values. The default is a period (.).
Numeric Decimal Places
The default number of decimal places to show when a cell format is set to display a Number or when column metadata or the data source identifies the value is a number data type. This value is also the default value presented to users in the Report Designer Cell Formatting dialog. Default is -1 which will show two decimal places. Values between -1 and 8 are accepted.
Currency Decimal Places
The default number of decimal places to show when a when column metadata or the data source identifies the value is a currency data type. Default is -1 which will show two decimal places. Values between -1 and 8 are accepted.
Apply Numeric Decimal Places to General Cell Formatting
Set to true to apply the Numeric Decimal Places to any cell that has Cell Formatting set to General but contains a number. Default value is false.
Apply General Currency Right Alignment
Set to true to cause currency values to appear right-aligned by default in report cells.
Server Time Zone Offset
A null-able decimal value that is used to convert server to client time (the negation is used to convert client to server time). This offset is not applied to data coming from Data Sources. It is utilized by Exago features like the Scheduler Service. Leave blank to use server time or if using an External Interface to calculate value.
A Server Time Zone Offset is only required if a Client Time Zone Name cannot be provided. Otherwise, all scheduling calculations will be performed using the provided time zone information.
Time Zone Name
Default geopolitical location of the client as determined by the IANA time zone database (e.g., America/New_York). Utilized by Exago to properly resolve scheduling issues centering around DST and other non-linear time zone conflicts. An External Interface may also be used to calculate time zone values. The setting is also used for other time and date related features in the application such as Date/Time functions like Now().
For information regarding the time zone enhancements made in v2019.1+, please see this article. For a full list of official IANA time zones and their relative UTC offsets, please reference this Wikipedia article.
