How can I change the date format in FreshBooks?

Go by a different date format than the default in FreshBooks? No problem! Here’s how to change your date format:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on the Misc sub-tab
  3. In the General Section, select the drop-down next to Date Format
  4. Date format drop-down in the Misc sub-tab.
  5. Click on the desired date format
  6. Click Save at the bottom.

This setting affects how dates look in your account (e.g., on the list of Invoices). However, this does not change the format of the date on the Invoices themselves. If they are in English, the date will appear in full, i.e., June 7, 2016.

If you change the language on your invoice, the date will be formatted to whichever is set up in your Date Format settings above.
