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 Forms 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 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.
Changing the Account Date Format
Admins are the only users who can customize the Account Date Format. Just follow these quick instructions:
- Navigate to Account>Account Settings under home.
- Under Account Time and Date Settings, find Account Date Format and click the Settings button.
- You will now be able to select from 3 different date formats: DD/MM/YYYY, MM/DD/YYY and YYYY/MM/DD.
- Once you have selected the appropriate format click Save.
