Summary16976: Date format problem
DescriptionI think Limesurvey's defalut date format is If the date format is changed to mm.dd.yyyy, A wrong date(month and day are switched) is being loaded on the sent or reminder sent date field when you try to edit a survey participant token information.

For an example, If 'sent' or 'reimindersent' date was 1.12.2021(Jan. 12 2021), 12.1.2021(Dec. 1 2021) is loaded.

If it was 1.13.2021(Jan. 13 2021), 01-01-1800 is loaded because month 13 doesn't exist.

I believe it's because database date type for 'sent' and 'remindersent' fields are string, not datetime like validfrom or validuntil fields so the personal date format selection is not working correctly.
Steps To Reproduce1. Change the Date Format to mm.dd.yyyy at My Personal Setting.
2. Create a token and send the invitation out.
3. Click 'Edit' on the token.
4. Date/Time field for Sent or Reminder Sent will load the wrong date that month and day are switched.
Additional InformationI have tested it on 3.25.4 (Your hosting server version) and on Version 4.3.33(Your Demo server version) and all have the same problem.

My personal setting is but the date in response page shows the switched month and date, I mean, the month first and date at the startdate and datestamp. I have checked at Version 4.4.0, Version 3.25.11 and Version Version 3.25.10 and all give the switched month and date.

Fixed issue 16976: Date format problem (#1761)

This patch is for the edit tokens screen.
This happens because the dates are somehow double converted (calling 2 times convertToGlobalSettingFormat)

This was already fixed for the invitation sent date. Now doing it for the reminder date.
