The support team at Easy Dairy have identified an issue with Windows 10 and Easy Dairy. Sometimes, Windows 10 will set itself to the American date and time format (mm/dd/yy) and will cause issues with Easy Dairy. The calendar and the Easy Dairy Cow Transfer function are affected the most by this, and will bring up errors (e.g. Invalid Date error on the Calendar, as pictured)
To prevent this happening to you, or having issues when importing animals from another Easy Dairy, please follow the procedure listed below. It will guide you through the steps required to change the date and time format to the Australian standard (dd/mm/yy) and stop issues with invalid dates happening in Easy Dairy.
How To Change The Date And Time Format In Windows 10
Please Note: Easy Dairy needs to be closed before starting this procedure
Step One: At the bottom right hand corner of the desktop, Click on the time. Then Click ‘Date and time settings’.
Step Two: On the new screen that appears – Select ‘Region & Language’. To the right ‘Country or region’ will appear. Use the drop down box to Select – Australia. Then Click ‘Additional date, time and regional settings’
