Date/Time issue for PowerApps

My PowerApp has a date picker in form. Whatever date I entered into the form, the submitted form will show up a date one day earlier. My App is connected to the Sharepoint list. The list while adding a new record has same issue.

I have read some comments for this issue and some suggested to put UTC instead of Local for the date picker of edit form. However, this will create another issue. The edit form will show one day earlier than that in the original display form.

I'm using iOS 10 but his issue did not happen before and just happens recently.

Re: Date/Time issue for PowerApps

Hi @Mikki

I have given up with dates in PowerApps.  I now just store all dates as an integer column with value yyyymmdd, so tomorrow would be 20161213.  This works well for sorting and is relatively easily parsed, and it obviously does not suffer from the schizophrenic behaviour related to multiple time zones.

Please let me know if you would like details as to how to implement this with time pickers, different locales etc.

Hi @Meneghino

Could you share more how to get around that? Thanks.

However, in my app, I have some searching to display information based on the date. Not sure if can apply the same.
