Date Picker - Changing the default format - Power Automate Flow

I am using the date picker to help users complete a form.

 

After the date has been chosen it is displayed as MMMM-YY-DD.

 

That isn't how we do it in the UK and it is confusing. I would like to set it to DD-MM-YYYY.

 

Any ideas how. I know I could do it using text fields, but I would rather not.

 

Thank you,

 

Paul

Hi @kellysolutions 

 

Believe you are referring to MS Forms. If it is then its based on your browser settings. Have a look at the below link.

I maybe haven't explained myself properly. I am referring to the flow itself.
Its a manual trigger I am trying to run.

The Date Picker  / Chooser allows you to pick the date, but the display of the value is confusing, and isn't easy to visually verify. Its too easy to misread.

 

Thank you,

 

Paul

Hi @kellysolutions 

 

In my knowledge there is no workaround for this? Further down the action step you can use the formatDateTime() expression to change the date to other formats.
