Date display formats are not right across all the ESRI platforms. The default JSON format for a date time should be

{
    "fieldName": "DATE_FIELD_NAME",
    "visible": true,
    "isEditable": true,
    "label": "Date Field Name",
    "format": {
              "dateFormat": "shortDateLEShortTime",
              "timezone": "utc"‍‍‍
    }‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
},

almost every other system in the IT industry has this as the default.

Instead we get 

{
    "fieldName": "DATE_FIELD_NAME",
    "visible": true,
    "isEditable": true,
    "label": "Date Field Name"
},‍‍‍‍‍‍

The default format is not specified and as a result is almost always forced into the American Date formats, it doesn't even conform with the ISO 8601 DATE AND TIME FORMAT

Just wondering if ESRI is ever going to action this? it seems like it is one of the easiest fixes ESRI would need to do is literally enter one line of code into their base code I have no idea why it's taking so long to solve such a simple problem.
