Dashboard Date Formats Incorrectly

When an attribute description is formatted to be a date, users may notice that the attribute description does not format the date in mm/dd/yyyy format.

We have evaluated this issue as a defect and have determined it will not be addressed in the program in its current state. In this case, we believe the risks and challenges outweigh the potential benefit of resolving this issue. We strive to select the most impactful changes and issues to address with each release to accelerate the rate at which we deliver new features while sustaining the highest level of quality for our customers.

Steps to Duplicate

1. Create a new attribute from Configuration with a data type of Date
2. Create a query on this specific attribute. 
3. Include the attribute description in the output of the query.
4. Include this query in a dashboard specific to the attribute type (Ex: gift attribute, gift query, gift query dashboard)
5. See that the attribute on the record is formatted as mm/dd/yyyy but in dashboard is formatted as text
