    Default Better date/time control in searches

    Is it possible to use any form of an ANSI/ISO standard date or date+time string in a search ?
    The:
    - after:
    - before:
    - date:
    search words fail with the following:
    2007-09-28
    2007-09-28 17:22
    '2007-09-28 17:22'
    "2007-09-28 17:22"

    I understand that you support the "american" way of writing dates, even though it is not a recognized standard by either ANSI (American National Standards Institute) or ISO (International Standards Organization). On the other hand to not support the formats which are recognized and established by ANSI/ISO, and incedentally the ones used throughout most of the rest of the world, leaves me puzzled and scratching my head when I try to manually type in date related searches.

    Does anyone know of a way around this ?

    Cheers,

    It's possible to write a zimlet to directly target the European time formats. Outside of that, you probably want to write a RFE in bugzilla, if you don't want to code it.
