This is a simple idea and I'm surprised it's not already an option.
Please can we have the ability to select the date format used?
The ability to use DD/MM/YY would make it much easier/less confusing when verifying the data on receipts
agree - this would be really helpful
Just started using this app and it's OCR. Most of the time it gets the date format correct. If numbers are separated by a / it works. But if numbers have a. or a - it thinks they might by US date.
I should be able to state I'm in UK and that the OCR seeing a £ sign should automatically know its UK date
Astounding that this isn't an option already
Me too. I have this problem for dates that use a '/' also. This should be an option or even be automated based on location.
What is worst about this problem is that it makes it seem like Expensify just discards receipts it has scanned. When what has actually happened is that it has moved to the incorrect date-based location.
Any update on how to do this please? I am using microsoft excel and i have changed to English (American) and used the / format and still not working... can't believe there aren't instructions for how to do this!
Thanks @JJLond0n for reaching out about this. Please can you message [email protected] directly and we can assist you with this and check the format for you. Thank you!
