Modify the timeformat in the Self-Service Portal

April 10, 2013 Posted by Alexander Axberg

If you need to update the format of how the timestamp in the portal is displayed (from 12-hour to 24-hour for example), go to the Portal with a Sharepoint-admin account.


Go to the Site Actions-button in the top-left corner, select Site Settings.

Under Site Administration, click Regional settings. Adjust the format to the desired setting and click “Ok”.

  1. Tried it and it does not work. I am unable to browse to https:///SMPortal/_layouts/settings.aspx, I get error “File not Found”. I can browse to https:///_layouts/settings.aspx and change settings there, but these will not reflect.
    Any idea what can I do next?

    Best regards,


    • I should wait few minutes before posting… Turned out alternate mapping was not set properly for the SharePoint site. Site settings could be accessed using DNS name. I fixed alternate mappings for the site and now everything woks fine.
