Date format for data entry


I have a case record form (paper) that has already been created and collected. It has multiple dates throughout the form and has the DD-MM-YYYY format. I am now trying to build the form for data entry for the investigator but cannot change it from the default of YYY-MM-DD.

Is there a way to change the format for dates to DD-MM-YYYY? I am worried that if i don’t change how it is entered the data entry will have errors as the investigator has limited computer literacy.

Any suggestions appreciated?
