Customizing Date Display

  • 1.  Customizing Date Display

    Posted 11 days ago
    We have several documents including emails that we date. As a global organization our preferred display is DD-MMM-YY; 24-MAR-20. This avoids all date confusion and uses minimal spacing.

    Our legal department has asked us to use the full 4 digit YEAR to prevent any alterations.
    Is there a way to create a custom date display: 24-MAR-2020?

    You can make a change in system settings to display date differently. Go to Settings > Admin > System Settings > Formats tab.
    From the Formats tab, under "Current Format" click the Customize button:
    In the new window that opens, specify your date format:

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you Heidi

    This feature allows me to select a different style, but the option I need is not available


    I was looking for DD-MMM-YYYY which would yield 24-MAR-2020

    The only setting available is the DD-MMM-YY
