Frequently Asked Questions

Does TinyDateTime launch at login?
Yes! You can enable TinyDateTime to launch at login by clicking on the status bar item and select "Launch at login".
Can I switch to a different month in the calendar?
Sure, just use the black triangles on the side of the month label to browse the next or previous months.
Why does launch at login not work?
Please ensure that TinyDateTime is installed under /Applications. Otherwise, the launch at login features does not work.
Can I try before I buy?
Yes! There is a special trail version to help you decide whether TinyDateTime does what you need.
macOS claims that the trail version is damaged, what can I do?
This is Gatekeeper macOS's system protector. All my trail apps are signed with an identifier developer signature. However, you need to allow such apps in your security preferences. See Apple's support document: HT202491.
I need troubleshooting or have an enhancement request, what to do?
Great, I'm always interested in feedback. In TinyDateTime use the Feedback / Issue reporting item in the menu or supply your request here. I try to get back to you as soon as possible.
