Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi all,

Trying to Group & Sort by Start Date (Group Internal =Day) and can't seem to find a way to change the date format. In my User Preferences, I have the Date Format set as Day, Month, Year yet in the Group & Sort it shows as Month, Day (US format). Anyone point me in the right direction to change this?

I've tried the same and I also get month-day as the format when grouping by day. I think this is just the default use for Grouping by Dates.
