Hi

When you create a new date column in SharePoint, the default format is MM/DD/YYYY.

 

However, I live in a country where we use DD/MM/YYYY, and changing in the default format into that is not approved by SharePoint - look at the screendump.

Hello!
that's controlled by your site's regional settings in settings,

Change the locale to match your country. Let me know how it goes
THANKS! :)
