I'd love it if you could possibly add the Date format YYYY/MM/DD (Chinese style) to the other two options.
Many thanks for considering this update.

I believe a ticket was submitted to our developers for YYYY/MM/DD to be among the choices in the form builder's date format selector but it's not been implemented as yet. So, the only way to present a date field to users in that format would be to use the form's full source and switch the inputs around in that order. However, the form's records would still display dates in the current format.

I agree this date format is needed (yyyy-mm-dd). If you use one of the two other formats then try to sort a table or grid report the dates will not sort correctly. In order to get dates to sort in the correct order for the English language/format you need the year first, then the month, then the date.
Please advise if this is ever going to be implemented.

I'll forward your request to our feature request list, I cannot commit with an estimated time when this will be implemented or not, but you be sure that our development team will get this message.

Great, thank you. However it seems that the grid & table reports are not picking up the new date format. They are still sorting with the date format mm/dd/yyyy.

Hi! Many thanks for getting this edit up - however I cannot select it as you have shown above.
I've logged out and back into the service and yet this has not refreshed.
Also tested in a new form and it didn't come up here either.
Could you suggest something that I'm not doing?
