How do I decide a date format for my organization?

Learn how to choose a standard date format for your organization, including metadata tags and date questions in templates

The default date format in Precisely is YYYY-MM-DD (for example, 2020-12-30). If your organization prefers a different format, an admin can change how dates are displayed in the platform in your organization settings.

To change your organization’s date format, simply

  1. Click your organization’s name in the top right corner and click Organization Settings,

  2. Choose a date format in the date format drop-down menu.

Note 1: Changing your organization’s date format applies to all users in your organization and to all places where dates are displayed in the platform. The date format does not apply retroactively. For example, date references in contracts created before changing the date format setting are not updated.
