- For Teachers
Is this a correct usage?
Please find the status of issues as of 4/7/2013 6:00 PM.
In the context to send a status report daily on the current status of the issues.
Remember your American readers will think that's April 7.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I just realised that your thread title asked about the usage of "as of". There have been other discussions on the forum about this. As you can see from my first response, I wouldn't use it in this context at all. You will hear (although many native speakers don't like it) "As of 6pm on 4/7/13, there are no known issues".
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

I have searched for this in Google, and I didn't find a concrete answer. Hence I posted a new query. I should have searched in this forum as well before I post.
