Currently, Business Central doesn't support country-specific date and time formats, instead distinguishing between European and US formats as a whole as documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics-nav/format-property. The European format doesn't work well in the Netherlands, with the standard format (8. September 2019) being a German format rather than a Dutch one. I suppose this is the case for multiple European countries.

Could we make formats in Business Central dependent on the 'Region' setting in Business Central (of course with the ability to modify formats in extensions when necessary)?
