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.

        Hi
        It will be appreciated and much more functional if we are able to choose dd/mm/yyyy format in Australia.

        Ridiculous that you cannot choose the date format for the region the form is targeting. Absolutely amazed that Microsoft are forcing a US date format on the rest of the world. Next we'll be back to using imperial measures. Come guys, sort this mess out.

        It would be great to be able to change the date format as it is confusing our users that receive the form responses here in the UK.

        Aligning the date format to the user profile date format makes the most sense to me, this option should be a given as soon as anyone creates a date field these days.

        I need a different date format for a form that I'm developing to help our company submit information to federal regulators. Date needs to be in ddmmmyyyy format. Why is this not an option?

        Would really like a UK version or at least change to a global approved date format like YYYY-MM-DD

        need french canadian version ... or simply remove the format and let us insert a text inscruction

        Desperately need a UK option. We are constantly processing requests with the wrong date as the format is incorrect for us.

        Please can you either add the ability to use the DMY format or, on the form allow an option to display the actual name of the day, month and year.

        In excel this could then be converted back to a date with =DATEVALUE

        Surely this is the solution, but I doubt it is that simple

        Please allow option to change date format as dd/mm/yy in Microsoft Office 365 Forms.

        Please allow option to select UK date format. Same problem with dates reverting to US format and dates in Excel wrong. Please urgent.
