It takes non-trivial effort to setup ArcGIS Pro to ones liking and the prospect of changing computers or being re-imaged is a dreaded experience.

Enabling easy export/import of options, favorites, portals, and licensing would greatly accelerate post-install productivity.

Users shouldn't have to manually futz in the registry to get something in HKCU\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Settings\ then copy something from AppData\Roaming\ESRI\ArcGISPro.

What would be better is if we could bake this into the install process, and deploy org-specific "Options" settings at install time.

For those following this idea, the framework that will allow organization-wide management of application settings was put in place in ArcGIS Pro 2.7.  See Manage application settings—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation which details the Settings available for administrator control.

You'll note that it is a limited set at this time.  What specific settings are most important for you and your organizations to make available for administrator control?  Please add comments below.

@MarkVolz has noted some specifics as part of Organization configuration editor for default sett... - GeoNet, The Esri Community 

Thank you!

Posting this here to document the request, @MicheleHosking1 is asking for a way to set the time/date format at the application level and allow for deployment through the Manage application settings workflow.

Am I interpreting that correctly, Michele?
