How to Change Date Formatting

The TrackVia web application will now set your date format correctly based on your system preferences.  For example if you are from the UK and your computer's operating system is set to ENGLISH (UK) you will start to see dates in the format of DD/MM/YYYY.  If you have an operating system set to CHINESE (Simplified) you will see YYYY-MM-DD.  Users with their system settings set to ENGLISH (USA) will see no change and dates will continue to be formatted as MM/DD/YYYY. 

Additionally to make sharing, scheduled reports, and data exports more consistent and readable across locales they have been updated to a medium format. i.e. Dec 11, 2015.
