I’m using dd/mm/yyyy format for all my date field. If the user manually enter dd/mm/yy it will automatically converted to mm/dd/yyyy. To avoid that i need make user to select the date only through the calendar . Is it possible?.

Try Following,

  • Go through Settings >> Translations >> Languages

  • Edit Record - Change in Date Format field %d/%m/%Y

Hope it works for you.

Hi, the setting you suggest is currently in use. If you use this format "dd/mm/yy", you will get the output as "mm/dd/yyyy". But if we enter dd/mm/yyyy, there is no issue. To avoid this i want make the user to select the date, by avoiding them typing a date.
