    There are two possible date formats in "DateTime" area; mmddyyyy and ddmmyyyy. Unfortunately, the format you are looking for is not possible to have on Jotform at the moment. I will forward this request to feature requests list but I can not predict if/when our development team implement it.

    In case of further assistance please let me know.

    yes this is a must! It is much more professional to say

    your booking for sunday 12th April 2015 is now confirmed rather than

    your booking for 12/4/15 is now confirmed.

    Come on jot form this should be quite a simple task to accomplish.
