Metric format in dashboard

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I am trying to display a date in a metric on a dashboard, all the sheets have the date displaying DD/MMM/YYYY but the metric displays DD/MM/YY. How do I get the metric to display the date in the format that I desire?

    Currently the functionality of the Metric widget will display dates based on your personal regional settings, versus the date format you set up in the sheet. Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment!

    As an alternative, you may want to use a Title or Rich Text widget to type in the date. If there are multiple cells you were looking to display along with the date cells, another option would be to create a report for those specific details and then display that in your dashboard with a Report widget.
