Forcing a locale language in Apps (mobile)

Hi everyone!

 

I'm experienced some issues linked to language configurations on diferent devices due to the language and regional setting of each one. In my case, I don't need to use diferent date or number formats because the application will be used just in one country. But... I'm experiencing some issue on App used in mobile PowerApp applications because some people used to use the celphone with spanish and some with english... As a pattern for the aplication, I'd like to "force" a application pattern of language/locale, but I didn't discover how I can do it.

 

In the really, I found a reference (link below) that shows which it can be forced on web access of PowerApp applications, but using the PowerApp studio or using the mobile App PowerApp is needed to change the OS regional/language configurations...

Is there a way for 'force' a default locale/language for a App (mobile and in Power App Studio)?

 

Thank you!

Hi Rapha,

 

You cannot force a locale language for an app in PowerApp on mobile. 

 

You could post this idea in the PowerApps Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.
