Does anyone know how to stop adobe sign from changing the date formats in my documents?

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

Hi ericr56292458

Could you please share the screenshots of the different date formats that are visible on your document so that we can diagnose the issue correctly.

Regards,

Aadesh

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
