# Change Date format in SharePoint modern site

I want to change the format of date from DD/MM/YYYY to DD MMM YYYY in a Modern list. Is there any way to achieve this with column formatting?, we don't want to use calculated column.

• So it is just for one specific list, not the entire site ? – Kasper Bo Larsen Apr 3 at 12:09
• Yes it's only for a specific list. – Ravi Apr 3 at 18:25

I think it's not currently possible to apply custom string formats with column formatting:

As you can see on official documentation, the operators to format dates are:

toLocaleString()
toLocaleDateString()
toLocaleTimeString()


You can use a calculated column, but if you don't want to use it you can do that with SPFx Field Customizer.

Except calculated column, there is no OOB method that I could thought to achieve your purpose.

Maybe you can do this using code. For using code in modern experience list, as RiccardoGDev mentioned, you should use SPFx.
