European date formats default option

Please let us have dates in European formats as a setting we can change at the account level, along with when we start our week (Monday). At present when you add a date column it:

  • outputs in the baffling month/day/year format and not day/month/year (or in ISO format for those who prefer that)
  • starts on a Sunday, which I find confusing (why split the weekend?)

I understand it’s the American way, but could there be an option to change the default date and calendar format?


I’d also really benefit from this, it seems like a very unnecessary place to add work for such a time-saving application.

Having to change every date field and every single date reference every time is somewhat unbearable!

Even worse, when syncing on cross-doc it imports the US format and you can’t change it (eg 6/2/2020 makes me think it’s the 6th Feb, not 2nd June). Please at least make ISO 8601 the default!
