Nomad Android need display date format as YYYY/MM/DD OR YYYY/MM

Nomad for Android show date as YYYY-MM-DD using @Today(checkdate field) with Traditional Chinese or Simplified Chinese OS for Android

or YYYY-MM using below code:

Sub Click(Source As Button)

Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace

Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument

Set uidoc = workspace.CurrentDocument

sMonth = Format$(uidoc.FieldGetText( "checkdate" ),"yyyy/M" )

Messagebox( sMonth )

End Sub

It display as YYYY/MM/DD OR YYYY/MM for Notes/Nomad Iphone/Nomad Web.

Notes application for Nomad on Android where date field is programatically enabled to take local input for e.g. like (2023年11月30日 on device settings), need replace it to 2023/11/30(YYYY/MM/DD)

So for this scenario, customer wish Nomad for Android get date format from Server not from the Android OS.

Or add one switch(one parameter), allow customers to determine to get the date format from Server or Client.

    Hello. In our testing, with traditional Chinese, Notes and Nomad Web use "/", while Nomad Android and even iOS use "-". According to, "the actual date separator used in the returned formatted value is the date separator specified in the operating system's international settings." So, it is documented that users should not expect the same separator on every platform, as the OS is responsible for choosing the separator.

    If you use "yyyy\/M" instead, then the slash is no longer a placeholder for the date separator, but is a literal slash. This should give you the behavior that you want.
