Changing the default units for calculating area

When I collect a new polygon the Collector App automatically displays the area. I've attached  a picture where it is in square feet (see the red arrow). I was wondering if there is an easy way to change the units to something else like acres. I know that you can use the measuring tool, but it would be nice if you can get the area in the units you want by just creating the polygon.

Tap the measure results to open the units' drop-down list and select the units you want displayed to view the measurement in different units. Collector_Measure_acres.png
