When you work with customers all around the world, you might want to adapt the date format of your documents to fit theirs. It’s possible to set a different date format per company entity in Teamleader Focus, allowing you to optimise the outgoing communications towards your customers. Find out how to set a specific date format in this article.


To change the date format of your company entity, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Company information > three dots next to the company entity you want to edit 

  2. Click on Edit next to ‘Filling out your company’s info’

  3. Choose your date format in the tab Date format

The options are:

  • dd/mm/yyyy

  • mm/dd/yyyy 

  • dd-mm-yyyy

  • dd.mm.yyyy


The date format you set for your company entity is applied to:

  • Quotations

  • Time Tracking Reports

  • Order Confirmations

  • Work orders

  • Delivery notes

  • Orders

  • Invoices

  • Credit notes

  • “Date” Custom Field 


  • It’s not possible to set a date format for a specific document as a date format is assigned to a specific company entity and is always applied to all documents of that entity.

  • Don’t forget to add the date as a shortcode on your documents if you want the date to appear. Read more about customizing your templates here.
