A lot of records here in the UK are only recorded by quarter year.If you put a date say of 1Q or 1stQ Roots changes it to a month.The records are not recorded by month.Please can we have the option to put the date into Roots as the record date is.

Here in the UK many of our records are listed by Quarter year. If put one of these dates(eg,1Q)RM changes it to March Q.In reality there is no March Q they are Jan Q.Apr Q.July Q.Oct Q.Can we have the option of leaving date formats as we the user want them.There are various ways to record these dates, 1Q/1stQ/Jan Q etc etc.The rather crazy thing is that when you add a fact that you date as 1Q RM changes it to March Q but the sort date is January Q which is what it should be really.Also when in Media Album if you enter the date as 3 Aug 1951 RM changes the month to 3 August 1951.I can only find this one place where RM uses full month name which i suggest reverts back to shortened month name.
