    I can see the "Changed:" at the bottom of the bullet tooltip, but now it says how long ago it was edited, not the date and time. I'd prefer date and time rather than "x time ago"; there's a lot of bullets I just use as reference, and don't add to for years at a time, would be nice to know the date without having to do math.

    I posted this on Slack yesterday... When you hover over a node you used to get the date last updated just to the right of the node. In the new version, this appears down below (less convenient for something used a lot). Worse though is that it uses smart dates, which I find very inconvenient. You have to mentally calculate, "...4 days ago, was that Thu or Fri?" 

    If you have to have smart dates it would be nice to keep the actual date, e.g. 2018-08-03 (4 days ago).

    When I hover over a bullet I have no date (which I always used to have), nor do I have a changed some time ago indication. When I hover over a bullet I just have a drop down list of: Complete, Add Note, Duplicate, Share, Export, Delete. This behavior is the same in Chrome, Safari, and the Mac app.

    I am finding the same as Alyson, just getting the basic drop down list of commands and no dates whatsoever.

    Yes. Our apologies, friends!

    This did get removed from the current live version.

    Those using the Beta version are seeing the Created Date in the hover menu. Those not on Beta don't have it at all.

    We will roll this back out to everyone on Tuesday of next week.

    We will take into account your good points about smart dates. Might fix that in a later iteration. 

    Thanks.

    Thanks...

    BTW, If you have to keep the smart dates, please (oh please) include the "dumb part", e.g. 2018-08-03 (4 days ago)

    The dates should be the way you want them on beta.workflowy.com

    Lee,

    Thanks. 

    Would it be possible to put that date changed at the top, closer to where it used to be?

    Also, it would be great if it used regional settings. I (strongly) prefer:

    YYYY-MM-DD

    Instead of the MM-DD-YYYY

    And I still don't understand why it needs have a slight pause before appearing. 

    It used to pop-up instantly.

    Lee, and it is VERY import that the time last changed be available.

    Is that something you include?

    I'm glad it's not like it used to be with the date appearing in a tooltip that pops up on top of and obscures the bullet menu. Thanks for fixing this.

    However, MM/DD/YYYY, is a bad format for the date. In Australia, our dates are normally in the DD/MM/YYYY format, so a date like 6/5/2018 will most probably be incorrectly interpreted. Please use an international date format like YYYY-MM-DD or a preference.

    We have now updated it so that the date will use your browser's preferred date format. Thanks!

    That's great... and if you are looking at the very last bullet in the page will it pop-up upwards so you can see the date without having to scroll down?
