How to change the calendar date format in Microsoft Forms

Frequent Contributor

Hi All,
I have created a form and used the date control but when i click on the date to select a date it is always defaulting to America date format 04/28/2022 but i want it to me Australian format which is 28/04/2022


Where can this be changed? What do i need to do.
When i save the form to a sharepoint list the date looks ok but on the form itself its wrong


Thanks in Advance

@Patrick Rote it's usually influenced by your browser's region/locale. For example I use Chrome, so go into Google and in the bottom right click settings -> search settings -> region settings and change it to Australia. See if that helps.

@RobElliott I am having the same issue and my region in Google is already set to Australia. Any other ideas??

Hey Patrick, did you find a fix for this one?

@Patrick Rote I found this solution worked for me.


It's a browser setting issue.

this worked for me.
