Dato is a replacement for the system menu bar clock.

By default, it looks exactly the same, but when you click it, you get a small calendar, calendar events, the current time in various time zones, and more.

Dato supports all the locales and languages that macOS supports for the menu bar text, dates, times, and the calendar, but the menus are English-only.

The calendar events are read-only. There's currently no support for adding/editing events. However, you can quickly open an event in your main calendar app an edit it there.

Note to Chinese users:

〉 How can I toggle AM/PM for the time?

Dato adheres to what you have set in “System Preferences › Language and Region”.

〉 Can you add support for Google Calendar?

It's already supported. Just add your Google calendars to and then enable the calendars in the Dato preferences.

〉 How can I change the first day of the week?

Dato adheres to what you have set in “System Preferences › Language and Region”.

〉 I added a calendar to the Calendar app but it doesn't show up in Dato

You need to enable the calendar in “Dato › Preferences › Events”.

〉 Can you add support for showing an analog clock like the system clock?

I have no plans to add that, but you can make it work by unchecking the "Time" preference in Dato and keep the system clock.

〉 Can you add support for flashing the time separator like the system clock?

I have no plans to add that, but you can make it work by unchecking the "Time" preference in Dato and keep the system clock.

〉 Dato doesn't show up in the menu bar

When the menu bar grows too large, macOS hides overflowing items, so Dato might have been hidden. Try to close some of your other menu bar apps. There’s, unfortunately, no way for apps to detect this and warn the user.


Version 1.14.3

- “Open in Google Calendar” and “Join with Google Meet” now opens the correct Google account if you have calendars from multiple Google accounts.

Easy, simple and brilliant

I use this app many times during a work day as a replacement of Apple's built-in time/date.

Best functionality is that a calendar opens when clicking on time/date in the taskbar. This allows to check a specific weekday/date of the current month or to peek on the calendar week number at a glance.

This is also a functionality available on Windows, which I missed on the Mac a lot. To work around, I opened iCal, which is now no longer necessary.
Also displaying the next upcoming appointments and additional time-zones is neat.

Sindre, the developer of Dato, appreaciates feedback and even implemented further improvements based on my feedback.
Thanks a lot!

Complete yet simple.

Straight to the point, "intuitive" UX. Extremely helpful for someone that needs to deal with several different timezones or regularly needs to check "which day of the week day X will be?".

Simple and Efficient == Great

It has everything I could ask for this kind of menu bar mini-app. 10 out of 10, would recommend! :D
