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, in the question type for the corresponded, it will be better if one can be able to ALLOCATE and IDISPLAY TIME for duration of the test or exam either for each question or for overall questions. Ability to give scores immediately the end of the test or quiz.

        Is there any way I can make the date to be UK format - day/month/year rather than the American format of Month/Day/Year?

        Please have a format option for dates as dd/mm/yy as this is how many parts of the world work..... eg UK, Aus , NZ and the American version just confuses people.

        Please can you add the functionality to change the date format to dd/mm/yy as per region settings in Office 365.

        it's crazy that when you create the form it show d/mm/yyyy (the correct format for Austarlia) then when the form is published and the results show mm/dd/yyyy. Please give us the option to choose the format.

        Please enable users to change the date to the format of their country. Only 5% of the world use MDY.

        Yes please can date format changing / region matching be added as a priority, it's letting down an otherwise awesome product. It's difficult for us to get any kind of management buy in if we can demonstrate something as simple as correct date formats

        I use Office 365 and gave my address is in Australia so it should follow the date standards in that country, it is not rocket science.

        Hi in the same boat as the users below, can you give the options to change the date format to dd/mm/yyyy, unable to use 'MS Flow' to update the date field in sharepoint

        why not make the international passport system the default 07SEP2009 and anything else something the user can choose....

        I would like to add to the call to make it possible to use the dd/mm/yy format in forms.
        What is even more confusing is that on the form it allows you to use a pop up a calendar that then puts the date into dd/mm/yy format but when it is opened in excel it is transposed to the mm/dd/yy format!? This is really rather odd and makes things more complicated than they should be....

        First form, second question...can't use the date format. Scrap that idea then :(
