Change the date format on Cloudcare

Hi there,

I was wondering if it is possible to change the date format from mm/dd/yyyy
to dd/mm/yyyy on Cloudcare? If so, how do i do this?

Kind regards,
Ameera

Hi Ameera,

There are some tricks you can use to change how dates appear, but it
depends a bit on where the date is appearing (e.g. in the case list, or in
a question label in a form). Where is your date appearing in your
application?

Thanks,
Amelia

Hi Ameera,

You can use date formatting to do this. If you are displaying the value of
a date question in the form, this is easy. Simply drag and drop the date
from the question tree into the question label box in the form builder.
When you drop the question, you can choose to display in mm/dd/yyyy or
dd/mm/yyyy.

Or, you can write out the exact date formatting you want using the
format-date function:

Hope this helps!
