I grew up a US military brat, using Day / Month / Year, and I am 100% familiar with your concern.
Atlassian uses SimpleDateFormat, so the easiest way to limit confusion on your platform is probably to pick something like "2/Mar/2023" instead of either 03/02/23 or 02/03/23.
No, it is not possible.
Date and time formats are global settings that apply to the entire Jira system.
Hi Alex, date format applies globally on your whole Jira instance, but you can choose a format which is not confusing. For example: 23/Jan/23 9:23 AM (dd/MMM/yy h:mm a), or 23/Jan/2023 9:23 AM (dd/MMM/yyyy h:mm a).
Hopefully everyone knows the current date, and your users will be familiar with the new format, soon.
You could specify ISO 8601 format, i.e., yyyy-MM-dd :-)
It's too bad that Jira can't look at a user's machine preferences to find their preferred date format like every other app on the Mac (hint, hint).
If you're using Structures, you're in luck! You can parse the dates down to their components and reassemble them.
