On the Call recorder gui in Settings, the display of the date of each records is incomplete.
Format yyyy.mm.dd hh:mm would be suggested.

EDIT 2 - these changes suggested does not work, my bad. I look back at yesterday's recordings and each one is now labelled "Yesterday" which is of less help than the original choice, so I make my answer to a comment

EDIT - I only have recordings from today (13/02/2018) to test this with. There is every chance the suggested changes may not work reliably with older/newer entries.

I know from past experiences you do not like "tinkering" methods, but this one couldn't be any simpler (at least to me) but is still tinkering nonetheless.

Regardless of your disliking for all things "tinkering", I will leave this here for others who DO like tinkering.

The file that controls the time/date resides at;

Line 198

 /usr/share/jolla-settings/pages/jolla-voicecall/RecordedCallsPage.qml

the original line is this;

text: Format.formatDate(model.modified, Formatter.TimepointRelativeCurrentDay)

Simply remove RelativeCurrentDay to look like this;

text: Format.formatDate(model.modified, Formatter.Timepoint)

No need to restart lipstick after editing, simply close the "Recorded calls" page and open again to reveal the new time/date format.

i'm speakless!!!! that just a parameter right!!!?
Why isn't it possible to choose with gui the art of the format???

about the tinkering.... I can't tell that tinkering is not a good method.
That is one which bring to a successful solution.
That's not really elegant, and is not the final stage.
But if the develop team don't make any change.
that's the last resort
Thank you anyway to point it on this thread.

IMO: The type of time format should be selectable in every app that uses time stamps and/or it should be selectable globally in Settings. I don't like the relative time indication which is so common nowadays. Two people wrote something in a forum or messaging app "yesterday" or "1 hour ago", how can I tell who wrote first?

+1 from me. This needs to be changed. I wonder if Jolla will take any notice. My 'tinkering' did not help, so my original answer is changed to a comment.
