Lightroom: Import as DNG - Naming of raw file backup folders needs changing

During import as DNG, when you choose to create backups of the raw files, Lightroom stores them in folders named "Imported on Monday, January 12, 2014". Please change this to "Imported on 2014-01-12" instead. That way I can sort the folders by date by sorting on the folder names. We have no need for the day of the week and month to be spelled out.

Another option would be to let us customize how LR names these folders.

Good idea. A work-around for the mean time:

Use sorting facilities of your OS to order them in your preferred fashion (e.g. sort by date-created column instead of folder name).
