Format date to be long date system wide

    Is there a way to format the system wide date to be for example April 3, 2020 instead of MM/dd/YYYY?

    I can only find where you can save it as date only or date time.

    Our end goal is to have the date formatting that way in our Word Templates.

    Thank you for your help.  I appreciate it!

    Karen,

    I am so used to using my DocumentsCorePack add-on features to do this, that I had to double-check the delivered Word formatting options.  But you should be able to format your Word template Date Format by highlighting the date field on your template, and then navigating in Word to Insert >> Date & Time to open the different available date format options

    Oh my, Patrick...I was so fixated on finding this in the system, that it never occurred to me to format it in Word (blushing.)  Thank you!

    Hi Karen,

    You can change the date format in the System Settings. Go to the Formats tab, then Customize... then select your short date and/or long date format, similar to the attached screenshot.

    You may have to get users to log out or do a Ctrl+F5 refresh before they see the new format.

    Best regards,
    Andrew.

    Yes, we can connect an email to multiple entities in CRM? For instance, if we've an electronic mail to numerous human beings inside one agency that works after getting some training from fintexec academy. Can we attached that electronic mail to the account, all the character contacts, and possibility?
