Module: Webform

The short date type is dd/mm/yy, so it appears correctly in the form (day/month/year) But in the mail it is shown with month first. (month/day/year)

How can I change the date type in the mail?

  • Can you please post the Date field settings for your web form. Aug 14, 2014 at 11:30
  • Hi Krishna Where do I find the Date Field setting?

  • I use the module webform. When I make the Date component I can choose type: date. That will make the date in the webform. You can se it here: domusmedica.dk/Kontakt_form. I can not figure out how/where to change the output and the date in the mail

Try go to admin/config/regional/date-time and set your site's Medium date type format.

Also, if the Medium format doesn't include at least a month, day, and year field, Webform will default to the American format of MM/DD/YYYY.

Webform uses the "medium" in e-mails and viewing submissions, though everywhere else (like a displaying the date component) it uses short for the order
