Need more adjustments to Properties in tables

I would really like to adjust my dates in Tables a little more. Currently dates can only be formatted as 12/11/2022, but in many columns it would save a lot of space if we could have the option of adjusting the date to 12/11 if its obvious what they year is, or maybe 12/11/22.
I know someone will say just do a text formula, but that would just create another field and another calculation, and would add to a process that would ultimately slow things down even more.
It would seem to me that this could be done, within Column Properties, and Design.
