Cross Object Formula on Oppty referencing standard date field on Account

I'm trying to create a simple cross-object formula on the Oppty to reference Last Activity on Account.  I have the formula working using the TEXT function and refencing the date field, TEXT(Account.LastActivity), but it's formatting the date as 2017-01-20 when it comes over.  I would prefer it be formatted like other date fields in Salesforce as 01/20/2017.  Any idea what function I would use for that?

Hi Laura, when you create a formula field, you should select data type as "Date" and not "Text". After you selected "Date" data type, just add Account.LastActivityDate as formula and that should do it.
