    How do I change the way the date is formatted on my calendar

    Asked by Kathy  on November 02, 2015 at 06:02 PM

     Is there a way you can adjust the date that shows the month by name instead of month number?

    When a user fills out our form it comes to us showing the date like this 11/11/2015 - how can I change it so when we get the email it looks like this Nov/11/2015

    At the moment it is not possible specify the mentioned formatting or any custom date formatting pattern.

    You can however achieve a similar patter using the form calculation widget and the date-string function.


    Here is the format that will be outputted in the calculation field.

    Please let us know if this meets your requirements.
