The date format cannot be changed, but you can write the date in the experiment name.
We advise you to write the dates into the format YYYY/MM/DD (exp. “2017/07/23/ - Protein purification”). This way, you can sort the experiments by the newest at the top if you choose From A to Z sorting function.
The alternative would be adding a multi-digit serial number (exp. from 001 to 999) in front of experiment name.
