Displaying calculated dates in short form without time in a form

I have a detail screen in my app which is used to show asset details for my company assets, two critical dates for us are the Next Service Date and the Warranty Expiry Date both of these values are calculated in my SharePoint list and when I add the fields to the Detail Form they are displaying in the following format 2012-06-31T23:00:00Z, whereas what we really need is this format 31-06-2021.

How can I define this formatting?

Use the Text(Now(),ShortDate)

Instead of Now() you can use your database column name of date.

Here is the date format detail in powrapps


Text ( Formula),"DD-MM-YY")

You can use:

Assuming the your data is in TextBox1, put the formula in another textbox2
If the data is in a Table, create a Collection:
ClearCollect(CollNewTable, AddColumns(YourTable,"NewDate",Left(Date,Find("T",Date)-1)))
Then use the collection which has the converted table: CollNewTable
