@onyebuchiboss Check if your date column as this setting (in the List settings in SP)

Thanks for responding @CNT . This is the setting I have on the date column:



@onyebuchiboss How are you writing back the values to SP? SubmitForm() or Patch? Could you share some formulas please.

I am using SubmitForm().   

@onyebuchiboss Does the datepicker has this property set,


Also, what formula do you have in the Update property of the DataCard which holds this DatePicker?

I have just confirmed it has the property set to the "dateTimeFormat.ShortDate".
