May I set date format in Spreadsheet independently of regional settings?

I’d prefer to use yyyy-mm-dd as short date format independently of regional settings. It looks like no such feature now.

Hello @SergeiStPete

It is possible to change date format for the cells by opening Number Format menu with combination CTRL+1 and selecting needed format in the drop-down list:

Thank you, but that’s not suitable. So, it looks like the answer is NO, we can’t change default date format.

You are looking for possibility to set a specific date format that will be used whenever you insert date, e.g. with combination Ctrl+;, despite of the format predefined by Regional Settings, is that correct?

Yes, like this. Bit more concrete I’d like to have yyyy-mm-dd as default date format independently of default one for the Regional settings used at this very moment.

Hi @Alexandre ,

Sorry, was off for a while. That will be great if you update settings, in any case please inform about your decision.
