Now() value patches different time

I'm currently following the tutorial about time tracker app by @RandyHayes . I noticed that my ActivityDate column doesn't match the value of Now() I see in Power Apps. How did this happen? The other column ActivityDateTime value shows correct time in yyyymmddhhmm format.

 

Please help.

Since the ActivityDate column is a Date column, it is subject to the regional settings of your list/site in SharePoint.

I would first take a look at your site settings for what region it is set to.  This will determine how a date and time is shown.

If you are putting Now() into the ActivityDate column and it shows differently, then it is almost always the regional settings.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Thanks for the response @RandyHayes . Will look into it.

 

Also, I'm having errors with the Hour dropdown. I'm not quite sure if it has something to do with the ActivityDate as well. Every time I try to edit the time, the dropdown's default shows as 1 instead of the right value:

What is the Items property of the Hour dropdown and what is the Default of it?
