      I’d like to change the date format to be MM/dd/yy. I’ve changed the locale file. However, this doesn’t change things that use datetime.s.f. I’m using v9 UI.

      Also, as far as I’m aware MM-dd-yy is NOT the generally accepted US date format. It is MM/dd/yy. Regardless of whether it is configurable, the US format should be changed. See:

      Hi team NexJ,

      Working on this with John. We are needing a quick temp fix until Product can properly fix this.

      Was thinking:

      1. Update default en file to use correct US formats or
      2. Add en.US to the Supported locales so that users can select it

      Let us know your thoughts while we wait for a fix.

       

      Thanks,

      Henry

      • Change the default en.locale file to have the US date format
      • Change the ids.format.regionalLocale to en-US in the same en.locale file
      • Update FALLBACK_LOCALE in User.meta to “en-US”
      • Update User’getDefaultLocaleRegion() from “CA” to “US”
