Update Confluence date picker format after updating language


Our date picker (//) used to be in the format MM/dd/yyyy.  I'm not sure when it changed but now the format is dd MMM, yyyy.  I've updated my general settings to reflect MM/dd/yyyy which didn't update.  Then I saw that we had our language set to English (UK).  Changed this to English (US) but still doesn't update.  Does anyone know how to update this?  Do I have to reindex or something?  Also, I've seen articles stating it honors the browser's language settings.  This is also English (US) on Chrome.

Which settings did you update, your personal settings, or the global settings?

I can confirm that if even if my global settings are set to English (UK), if I set my personal settings to English (US), then I get the English (US) date picker. After I made my change, I did have to manually refresh the page in my browser before editing a document, but the changes did show up.

Another question - now that you see your language as set to English (US), does the date picker show Sunday as your week start, or Monday?
