How to enter a date using period or dot (.) as the separator; and using yyyy.mm.dd as the entry format? My system preferences short date format is set up as yyyy.mm.dd. Numbers will recognize “-” and “/”. I do not care to use those for data entry.
Example: Typing 2021.9.2 into a date cell should be accepted as a date that I might format as 2021 Sep 2.
I do not usually format dates with dots, but it is my preferred method of data entry on a numeric key pad; and it is the way I have done it in Excel for years.
