Customizing the Next Activity Date format

Does anybody know how to customize the format of Next Activity Date? I want to include it in a Template, but the only format is DMM/DD/YY. I'd like to have it appear as Day, Month Date (e.g. Monday, September 6) as opposed to 9/6/21.

Thanks in advance for your ideas

Customizing the Next Activity Date format

Hi @spaulsen 


Thank you for reaching out. 


The way you see the Next Activity Date format will depend on the Date format you chose in your preferences (Settings > General). For example, someone who chose USA will have for Monday, September 6: 09/06/2021, but another user who chose France in their preferences will see 06/09/2021. There is no way at this stage to display the actual day for this property.
