Language and Date Settings


The language and date settings allow you to control the internal time tracking used in your store's dashboard. This helps you keep record of when orders come in and how dates are displayed. 
At this time, the only Language setting available is English. This setting can not be changed. 

Language and date settings can be accessed in Store SetupStore Settings, under the Language & Date tab.

In some versions of the control panel, this is located under Setup & ToolsCustomize your storeStore Settings.
