Ability to change date format to correspond to the user's region
Hi. In the question type where a date is required currently the only option (as far as I can see) is the US format. Can you kindly give us the ability to choose the region settings for this please? Thanks.
Can we please have the date format fixed?
And while we're at it could we please have data validation set up also??
This is a "Must Have" requirement :)

Ridiculous not to have the option to change date format. We won't use it until this is introduced.

Can't use Forms with our 1000s of Australian clients until this issue is resolved.

Unable to use Microsoft Forms with Australian dd/mm/yyyy date format.
3/4/2019 should mean be 3rd April 2019 in Australia but in Forms output it is 4th March 2019.
Sharepoint is fine with AU settings. Office365 as well. Outlook. Forms needs this.
Give us the option to select a format.
I would like the ability to have date in dd/mm/yyy and to be able to put times as well please

This is causing us challenges and confusion - please fix asap

We have not started using Forms yet but this will cause confusion in our organisation. Please fix it.
This flaw is stopping us going live with some of our forms. Please fix asap.
Please fix this. It is a basic requirement for many other countries and users. If Google forms can do it, so can Microsoft.

Please sort this out. The US date format is as backwards as the imperial measuring system.
I can't use Office forms for work, because the m/d/y format causes huge problems for my clients: i.e. generates documents with dates that are not accepted for compliance purposes can can cause them to be fined.
This is ridiculous. We aren't all from America.
No problem in Google Forms. Come on Microsoft, lift your game!!
Please fix - it's a real bugbear for UK users
Please FIX THIS! Why would I send a survey out to UK participants with US format dates? Give us the option to select a format
It's been two years - what's the hold up?
The only territories in the entire world which prefer M/D/YY formatting are:
- The USA and connected regions
- The Phillipines
- Parts of Africa which speak Swahili, Ewe or Zulu
- Greenlandic speakers (principal language in Greenland is Danish - you guessed it - therefore D/M/Y).
The date formatting restrictions on your form will lead to confusion everywhere else in the world.
While you're at it, perhaps lobby the US Government to include some reference to the existence of the rest of the world in your education system.

US centric view of the world.
Essential to make the date to be UK format - day/month/year rather than the American format of Month/Day/Year. Otherwise we just look stupid to our users
