Most user friendly way of writing a date and time?

Hi there,

I need to write a date and time on my website for an event and wondered what the best way to write this would be to make it as user friendly as possible.

Should I write it in full, for example:
Saturday 22nd January 2022 @ 08:00am - 12:30pm

Or should I shorten it to:
Sat, 22nd Jan 2022, 08:00am - 12:30pm

Any thoughts on this would be great, thanks!

More important is that you use

And not a fixed format

Thanks. I meant the best way/easiest way for a user to read.

It depends on the country and language spoken by your audience. For me in the USA, the most comfortable would be:
Saturday Jan 22, 2022, 8:00am - 12:30pm

As already mentioned, it is dependent on the user’s language and country. I would make sure to look at what Thallius posted because that is designed to be sensitive to their culture and thus is easiest for the user to read. :slight_smile:

Hello to me Saturday, January 22, 2022 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM this method is also more convenient, I live in Europe)

Or maybe you could simply write it in this format: SAT 22/1/22 @8:00am - 12:30pm
