Change Date Format in PowerApps itself?

Hi,

 

I've been looking to change the date format / locale of PowerApps itself. Like in the image below, the date is shown in the US format, where can this be changed to the European format? The locale setting in Outlook is already set correcly, but this doesn't effect PowerApps (as expected) but I can't find a setting that effacts PowerApps.

 

Do I have to ask our Office 365 administrators to change this?

 

Any help is welcome.

 

Regards,

Robert

Re: Change Date Format in PowerApps itself?

Hi @Power_Robert 

The PowerApps portal displays date formats based on the language setting of your browser. Therefore, the only way to change what you see there is to change the language through the settings of your web browser.

This post might be of interest to you, especially the comment about using the en-NL culture code since you're based in the Netherlands.

Re: Change Date Format in PowerApps itself?

Hi @Power_Robert ,

Do you want to change Time zone of PowerApps from US to Europe?

I'm afraid it's not supported to change it directly in PowerApps.

For now, time of PowerApps is determined by your local location by default.

It means that if you are in US now , time will display as US time automatically.

I suggest you express your views about changing time zone on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.

If you want to change Time zone, you could only change it manually by using TimeZoneOffset function.

For example:

DateAdd( Now(), TimeZoneOffset(), Minutes )  // change local time to UTC

DateAdd( StartTime, -TimeZoneOffset( StartTime ), Minutes )  //convert time from UTC

 

Using this can only change the time data inside PowerApps, but the time in the pic that you showed will not change.

Re: Change Date Format in PowerApps itself?

Hi @v-yutliu-msft ,

Thank you for your help. What I mean is the time format, so it shows mm/dd/yyyy. I am in The Netherlands so I like to see the date as dd/mm/yyyy in PowerApps itself (at the location as shown in the picture), not in one of my own apps. (And maybe a 24H time as well, but that is less important to me.)
