Date Fields

Nova offers two types of date fields: Date and DateTime. As you may have guessed, the Date field does not store time information, while the DateTime field does:

use Laravel\Nova\Fields\Date;
use Laravel\Nova\Fields\DateTime;

DateTime::make('Created At')


By default, Nova users will always see dates presented in their local timezone based on their browser's locale information.

In addition, users may always set dates in their local timezone. The dates will automatically be converted to your application's "server-side" timezone as defined by the timezone option in your app configuration file.

Customizing The Timezone

Sometimes you may wish to explicitly define the Nova user's timezone instead of using the browser's locale information. For example, perhaps your application allows users to select their own timezone so that they always see consistent date timezones even when traveling around the world.

To accomplish this, you may use the Nova::userTimezone method. Typically you should call this method in the boot method of your application's NovaServiceProvider:

use Laravel\Nova\Nova;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

 * Bootstrap any application services.
 * @return void
public function boot()

    Nova::userTimezone(function (Request $request) {
        return $request->user()->timezone;

Customizing The First Day of the Week

By default, Nova's Date and DateTime fields recognize Sunday as the first day of the week (as the United States, Canada, and Japan do). If you wish to customize this to follow the international standard ISO 8601, you can set the firstDayOfWeek option on the field:

DateTime::make('Created At')->firstDayOfWeek(1);
