How to change datetime string format?

Joplin desktop has a button that automatically inserts the date and time. How do I change the format of this string e.g. I would like 2020-7-30 instead of 30/07/2020 11:45

Tools -> Options -> General

There is a dropdown that lets you change the date and time formats.

Thanks!
Is there any way to customize it beyond the provided formats (if I would like to exclude the time, for example)?

No, but you could create a template with the contents

{{date}}

which you could insert using Ctrl-Alt-I. But that’s a bit convoluted.
