Hi Fredrik,

I assume you using a regular Acrobat field and using the Format tab in the field properties? If so Adobe Sign does not support that.

You need to use a special syntax for the naming of you field, called text tags.

what kind of date field is needed? Do you need an automatic date field that populates the current time, or do you want the signer to enter a date?

See following link about text tagging and acrobat forms for Adobe Sign use

dd/mm/yyyy is also quite europan unlike the mm/dd/yyyy the americans use.

How are you adding the date field to your agreement? dragging and dropping, text tag, or acrobat form field?

I use Acrobat form field where my yyyy-mm-dd format is an option.  When I try to send the form I have to "correct" the date format to the american format

When I used to send Adobe sign I would designate who I wanted to sign in what box (in the case of multiple signatures) and then insert a date box for the appropriate person. That would be it, simple. Now, it automatically defaults to EU date style (day/month/year), and you have to remember to change it to American style (month/day/year) EVERY SINGLE TIME. Either make it so that once you change it to American style, it stays like that until you change it again, or have it default to American style since we ARE IN AMERICA, or have a tab where you can designate default settings.  Looking at the message boards, I am not the only person having this problem. I understand you want to jazz up the program but I am too busy to change the date EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEND SOMETHING, and I send multiple things a day.  Everyone at work hates this update. Thank you.
