Setting the Date Format

Date Format sets how dates display. Administrators can set the date format, and users can change the setting to determine how dates display when they work in forms and task lists.

  To set the date format:

  1. Select Preferences in the left frame, or select File, and then Preferences.

  2. Click the Planning icon, and then select Display Options.

  3. For Date Format, select MM-DD-YYYY, DD-MM-YYYY, YYYY-MM-DD, or Automatically Detect (to use your system’s locale settings).

  4. Click OK.
