IssueDate automatically displays in HIJIRI Year (the era that is used in the Islamic lunar calendar, which begins its count from the Islamic New Year in 622 AD) when using Arabic (Saudi Arabia) Locale, however, users would like to keep the Date format in Gregorian and have the option to choose so.

CauseThe Date format is determined by the user Locale. This is not just Archer but any system using Arabic (Saudi Arabia) Locale will have a Hijri Date Format.

ResolutionThis is working as designed. 
WorkaroundThe workaround would be to use any other Arabic Locales such as Jordan to keep the Gregorian Date Format.
