The time can be displayed in several formats. If you have users and customers around the world, the time format could vary. Different countries follow different time formats. I.e., 12 Hours Format (am/pm) or 24 Hours (0 to 24 numerics)

AppJetty Calendar 365 is a Microsoft Dynamics CRM plugin to create, manage, and track CRM activities in one place from the custom calendar. From the Calendar 365 configuration, you can configure the time format in which you want to see activities.
