Date and Time Column in SharePoint
Every list in SharePoint, by default, includes â€śDate & Timeâ€ť column that helps to track when a specific item was firstly created or was last modified.
You may though have to add suitable columns including date & time information as many of the items that are tracked in a SharePoint list have certain level of time relevance like â€“
- Expiration date
- Review date
- Completion date
Beyond the options that help to determine whether this date & time column is actually needed and that help to add a description, itâ€™s your choice to have the column show only a specific date or time value.
It should be understood here that time values are especially useful in following cases –
- If you intend to have your list information displayed in the daily calendar view or
- If you define critical details on events like meetings or appointments
You can select to display the date value in either of the following formats –
- Standard format
- Friendly format
You can even leverage the option of using a calculation for default value.
We hope this tutorial explains the concept of Date & Time column fully.
