When setting a date attribute, by picking a date from the selector, the system typically pre-sets the hour to 18:00. How can I change this default?


  1. Log in to the Web Server (virtual) machine.
  2. Go to ..\artios\WebCenter\WebServer\tomcat\webapps\WebCenter_Inst\config.
  3. Open config.xml in an editor, for e.g. Notepad++.
  4. Search for the DefaultDueDateTime element and modify the value.
  5. After modifying and saving config.xml, restart the WebCenter TomCat service to see your changes.

Tips for modifying the value

The value has to be a number, by default it is set to 36. To calculate the right value, use the following formula: Hour = value/2 (30 minutes unit).
For example: If you want to set the hour to "17" (17:00), you need to set the value to "34".
