    A summary of your idea:
    Add the international format yyyy-mm-dd to the Inspector > Data > Data Formatting > Format popup list

    This simple and easy to implement change will let the world know that FileMaker is useable by all people on planet earth.

    Truly it would be a change that would have impacts that span time and place.

    Background:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_format_by_country

    Why this idea is important to you:
    The benefits are obvious and the cost to implement is low.

    • Better for sorting, both visually and exporting.
    • Compatible when exporting data (with the preserve formatting checkbox) that is going to be imported to SQL and (others?)
    • Too many advantage to fit here...


    Specific use cases you are looking to solve:
    Increased world harmony through more international and interoperable technology.
