Non-US date format in Zoho Sheet

Non-US date format in Zoho Sheet

Hi

I'm a Zoho user from New Zealand where the standard date format is DD/MM as oppose to MM/DD as is common in the US.

I can set the format for existing dates in Zoho Sheet to DD/MM but still have to enter new dates in the US format. I.e. to enter November 4 I have to put 11/4 even if the cell is set to DD/MM/YYYY and immediately re-displays the input as 04/11/2011.

That's pretty confusing and user unfriendly.

Two suggestions:
- could the spreadsheet parse the date entered according to the format set for the given cell?
- can we have a global setting for these things somewhere? I want all dates in all Zoho apps displayed by default as DD/MM/YYYY without explicitly setting it everywhere.

That'd be awesome!

Thanks :)

            • Data Validation now available in Zoho Sheet

              We are glad to release the 'Data Validation' functionality in Zoho Sheet. Using this, you could restrict the data that is entered in cells to a specific condition that you set. If it is a numeric cell, you could add numeric constraints like the number should be less than 20, or between 40 and 60, etc. This could be really useful when you have a ​calculator like functionality on your spreadsheet and expect the input data to fall within a range. Similarly you can set rules on cells with Text and Date

              We have been supporting conditional formatting in Zoho Sheet for more than 11 months now. We support setting rules on Numbers, Text, Data, Cells containing blanks, and errors. We also support setting specific formats based on the result of a Formula. This could be very powerful and could be used to color whole rows based on the value on a particular column.
