Note: When the destination fields are updated with the source field values via workflows or approvals, then the CRM account owner’s preferences are applied. The preferences are set up under My Preferences and Calendar Settings.


Consider this example: If a deal’s Description field (destination) is updated with the deal’s Expected Close Date (source) via a workflow, then the date format in the Description field takes the CRM account owner’s format.
