Show “Day” on Widget

Hi there, I would like to provide a few suggestions that can be made to improve Goodtask Widget.

(1) The option to enable/disable showing “Day” in the widget for the next 7 days. (Just like the stock ios app widget and many others.)

For example, events coming up within the next 7 days would show

Saturday, 27 Aug instead of 27/08/22.

This would personally help me to glance at the information and instantly know if the event would be happening in the coming days or will occur sometime in the future.

(2) Also, I would like to have the choice of changing the date format in widgets.

For instance, (except for today and tomorrow,) the date format could be shown as

27 August or 27 Aug instead of 27/08/22.

Again, this would help with ease of reading.

P.S. I am using the medium widget with calendar turned on, and having these options would definitely improve visuals and ease. I understand that it may not be suitable for other widget use cases, hence having the option to turn it on or off would be good.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not getting your first suggestion. It seems like the same one with the second one. Am I right?

There are system-wide settings for the date format. I would prefer, that every App respects these user settings. In my case, I use always ISO date format: yyyy-mm-dd.

Yes they are ultimately the same. Except that the first point (1) emphasises on having ”Day” for the next 7 days, while the second point (2) was asking for the option to change future date formats in widget without the day and year.

Apologies for the confusion

Hi @kaschu, thanks for the feedback. Currently the app follows system locale and settings. If you customize separate widget theme, you can make it to follow other languages too. If something is not working as expected, please let me know.

@DServant, thanks for the details. I'll keep it on the list to consider.
