Add Exact Date and Time of a Comment and Remove 'Last' Verbiage

Update the date and time stamp of comments to the actual date DD/MM/YY and time. Currently a task posted on Monday says 'Last Monday' when you view it a few days after during the same week - it can be confusing as to exactly which Monday the comment was posted (i.e. two days ago Monday or last week Monday).

I've had users request this change as well. It is hard to determine if an update is from the current week or the week before.

Bravo, Kimberly. The way the date stamp currently states "Last Monday," it is referencing, in reality, "Monday" and not the Monday in the week prior which is what "Last Monday" actually means. Confused yet? I am!

Just put the actual date in, Workfront, instead of words.

Come on, Workfront. This is a little crazy, don't you think (see screenshot)? Today is Thursday, 17 June 2021. My notification are grouped by "Today," "Yesterday," then "Last week."


Last Week starts with notifications that were two days ago on Tuesday. How is that last week? Please fix!

PLEASE Workfront... get rid of this silly "last xyz" verbiage on comments now. It would be such an easy fix to just put in the date/time stamp of the comment/update. I got yet another user complaint about this. It is so confusing to folks. Especially bad if you have to copy/paste a comment somewhere else. Then you have to figure out the actual date and enter it in manually on the pasted comment. Beyond frustrating.

Is there any movement on this change? The grammar is incorrect and needs to be fixed. It is inaccurate for users to see "Last Wednesday" for an update made one day ago. Also, there is no hover text showing the exact date and time of updates listed like this.

I would love to see this changed.  I (and most of my users) put the date at the top of the update as a work around because the default way Workfront displays it is confusing.
