Change Form Date Format to Spell Out Month in Words


simon.stjohn

Question

The default format for dates in forms is MM/DD/YYYY

I see there are already several solutions to change to DD/MM/YY

However, I have a client who is a holiday rental with managers in Asia, clients in Europe and Australia etc so they are getting very confused with DD/MM and MM/DD.

Can anyone help with a way to change to a format that spells out the month in words so the form collects the date as, for example:

1 January 2020 (instead of 1/1/2020)

1 June 2020 (instead of 1/6/2020)

And also, not just does this on the form but also uses the same format when emailing the form results?

Many thanks in advance...

Simon

When a site is aimed at an international audience, it's better to use a date picker. It's a UX/UI standard. The customer can accurately choose the date and the backend can process the date in any format you choose, for example 1 January 2020.
