Date Token Format

Date Token Format

There should be a way to edit date tokens to show in a day-month-year format. Currently it appears as year-month-day.

When we tested the below token in a payment reminder email, the field shows as 7/8/14 in Salesforce, but shows as 2014-07-18 in the email. We want to edit it to appear as 7-18-2014. 

{{lead.Next Payment Due Date:default=soon}}

Because we cannot edit the date token format, we have to use the 2014-07-18 format or say "your payment is due soon" which we feel is a poor customer experience. 

I recommend making this a future enhancement. And looking at other ideas posted, it seems this has been an issue since 2012. What plans do you have to resolve this issue in the future?

For tokens used in emails, the scripting could be a short term solution.

It would be quick and simple: read the date, convert into string and then use substrings to display the the intended format.
