Cascade allows you to customize the date format you would like to use within the system, and it allows you to choose a year-end date as a default deadline for new goals.
You can changes the date features at any time, but be aware that the changes will be reflected across the entire system to all other users (including existing build).
Select the Date Format:
Travel to Profile > System > Company to bring up the date options. Select the date format you prefer (see the example below), and select 'Apply' to save your changes.
Set the Year End Date:
From the same Company page, select the day and month your strategic plan is scheduled to end. Select 'Apply' to save your changes.
Note: The year-end date selected will be the default deadline for all newly-created goals in Cascade.
