Custom properties dates over write.

We have a custom property tab for all our models. In that custom properties tab is a "Checked Date" and a "Drawn Date" field.

 

We are running into a problem where the designer/Detailer enters a date manually into the properties box. They enter it as 9/28/20. The checker comes along and checks it and then opens the custom property tab. The custom property tab does not recognize the 9/28/20 as a date since it is not in the MM/DD/YYYY format so it shows as blank. The check then enters their check date 09/28/2020 and saves custom properties. Since the drawn date is blank it then over writes the existing drawn date with a blank.

 

 

Is there a good way to deal with this? I'm thinking along the lines of.

1) can we force a MM/DD/YYYY format in the properties dialogue box?

2) Can somehow make the custom properties tab recognize all formats of dates so that 9/28/20 would show up and be saved as 9/28/2020?

 

I did some searching in here and did not find anything directly related to this.
