As a server admin I want cPanel & WHM to use the standard ISO 8601 date and time format in the filename of user-generated full backups so that I can easily manage, sort and use them. This is especially important when handling multiple or numerous user-generated backups.

Yes, please! When offloading a series of CRON-automated backups to an offsite FTP system, this would make life much, much easier.

With ISO-8601 sorting just works.


Also, for anyone who doesn't live in USA, Micronesia, The Phillipines, or Saudi Arabia it just looks weird and confusing.
