Hi,

Is it possible to change the date format in Survey123 . Now, it is showing as mm/dd/yyyy and I want to change as dd/mm/yyyy.

See the format-date capability in Ismael's post here: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-blog/dates-and-time-in-survey123/ba-p/895528.

It will look something like format-date(${myDateQuestion},'%d/%m/%Y')

Hello there
I tried with what you indicate and the output result is December 31, 1969

I still can't figure out why this error is due

Hi @sanio you'll need to add some code under the 'Calculation' column to have the date reformatted.  This thread is a great resource for information about formatting the date and time in Survey123:

Hi @sanio, I have a template in which I use the date format calculation to produce a timestamp that I can use as an ID.

When the date is auto-populated, it still shows up in the live form as something like "Thursday, July 29, 2021," but when the observation is submitted, another field records  the full and reformatted dateTime as "20210729044923."  You can see this in my screenshot under the read-only "Feature Timestamp" field.

Apologies, I'm not exactly sure how to adjust the appearance of the date in the form view unless you do something like I did by printing a read only field just below with the dateTime reformatted as you want it to appear.
