    Submission date format in excel report

    Asked by elsac on September 18, 2014 at 11:05 AM



    Submission date is on yyyy-mm-dd format, what is the best format for us. 

    In the last days, the "Answers" are in the right format, but when we download the excel they convert to mm-dd-yyyy. Since we copy/past all the entries to the same excel, we now have different formats there that are more difficult to align correctly.

    Is there a way to download in the yyyy-mm-dd format?


    Thank you very much,

    I believe this is a setting that can be changed in excel as the program itself interprets the data and displays it this way.  Here is a guide on how to change the format:
