As the date formats used across the world are not the same, you may need to change the format used in a column containing dates.

Procedure

  1. Select a column containing dates.
  2. In the Functions panel, click Change Date Format in the Suggestion part to open the options for the associated function.
  3. In the New format list, select the date format you want to apply.

    See Date Formats for more information regarding the available options.

  4. In the Your Format field, type dd/MM/yyyy to change the date from an American format to a French one.

    For example, this will change 12/25/2015 to 25/12/2015.

  5. Click Submit.

Results

The date format is changed in the selected column.
