Date format

Is it possible to change the date format in search fields? By default we see that the date format is dd-mm-yyyy We noticed that entering a manual date like 1-1-2014 is accepted by a search field. By using the date picker and setting the same date as above it is being resulted as 01-01-2014 in the search field. Can you explain this behaviour? In some date fields we notice that the only format being accepted is like 01-01-2014 dd-mm-yyyy Can you guide us with the best practice.

Check out the project settings -> Languages tab. In there you can set a default date, time, and datetime format.
