    The notification emails that go out to the end user have a US date format (mm/dd/yy) irrelevant of what the service desk settings and timezone are set to.

    This should either be the same format as the timezone, or a configurable option.

    A way around this is to list the date out in full (May 9th 2014) which would avoid any confusion.

    e.g. if i raise a ticket today, the 9th of May, the date on the notification email that the end user receives will be 05/09/14. this is fine if you are in the US, but in a European date format country (such as Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Israel) the end user would read this as the 5th of September.

    for more info on date formats and where they are used, see  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_format_by_country
    What problem will this feature solve?:
