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.
What does this mean?
When you or your users log in to the GoCanvas website, most dates should display with your Account Date Format. If you've selected DD/MM/YYYY, then you'll see DD/MM/YYYY format as your Last Edit date on the Apps page and Submission Date on the Submissions page to name a few.
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 Apps 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 App by App basis.
