I have had $SQUEUE_FORMAT set in my environment for a long time, but have only today learnt that sacct will also listen to an environment variable to set a default output format. Previously I had only looked for it in the Environment Variables section of the sacct man page, which doesn't list it; today I noticed that $SACCT_FORMAT is mentioned under -o in the main body of the man page.
It would be good to add it to the list of influential environment variables, e.g., as below.
