The Account Date Format setting allows you to control the default date format for users on your account as well as configurable dates across the account.

Account Date Format

When you or your users log in to the GoCanvas portal, most dates should display with your Account Date Format. A few examples of what this impacts includes Last Edit date on the Forms page and Submission Date on the Submissions.

There are three date format options:

    • i.e. 03/27/2024 or March 27 2024;
    • i.e. 27/03/2024 or 27 March 2024;
    • i.e. 2024/03/27 or 2024 March 27.

This also means that configurable dates across the account will default to your Account Date Format. Currently these dates include the PDF Date Format and Submission Numbering. New forms on your account will pull the same date format as the Account Date Format. If needed, you can customize the PDF Date Format on an form by form basis
