Linking date columns

I am linking date columns from a master sheet to another sheet. When linked it seems to change the format of the date. For example if the date in the original sheet is 12/08/19 (12th August 2019) in the linked sheet it is displaying as 08/12/19 (8th December 2019).

The original cell doesn't have any dependancies.

    Hi Emma,

    I recommend you check the destination sheet to ensure that you're indeed linking to a date column (a text/number column does not honor any localization settings regarding date/time).

    If you're still running into issues after trying the above, reach out to our Support team and they can troubleshoot further with you.
