How can we improve Microsoft Invoicing?

Use the date format from settings

The date on invoices is in US format - MM/DD/YY - even though I have my location correctly set as UK. I think is a bug rather than a feature but it needs to be fixed as customers are given a date which can have an impact on when they pay.

        Further information on this. In the invoices list, the dates are shown in the correct local format - DDMMYY in this case - but the invoices editing screen shows the US format - MMDDYY - as do the invoices themselves when sent to the customer. So it looks like the settings are being picked up but are not being applied correctly.

        Thanks for responding. I don't thing Edge has separate browser language preferences as far as I can see? All the setting I can find - Office 365, Business Center and Windows 10 Control Panel are correct. Also, the same issue is happening when I create an invoice in iPhone app. It would be very much appreciate it if you could fix this, as it the date confusion makes Invoicing pretty much unusable.
