PowerApps in Teams showing the incorrect Date format

Hello

So today I added a PowerApp to one of our Team channels. When the app loads in the desktop version of Teams it uses the US date format. It's fine on the Web Version of Teams (UK Format)

 

I've checked the language settings in Teams (desktop) and the language is set to UK. The keyboard layout cant be changed from US to UK.

 

The regional settings are all set correctly on Windows 10.

 

Anyone else come across this? Have I forgotten to do something?

 

Will

Re: PowerApps in Teams showing the incorrect Date format

Hi @WillEdz ,

 

If you want the date format always to be shown in UK date format, then please use a formula like below in PowerApps to achieve this:

Text(ThisItem.StartDate, "dd/mm/yyyy")

Re: PowerApps in Teams showing the incorrect Date format

Sorry to jump onto this thread. I'm having the same issue, but in my case it is with currency, in the web I'm correctly getting the UK Pound sign, when using the app from within the Teams desktop client I'm getting US Dollar sign.

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks

Re: PowerApps in Teams showing the incorrect Date format

I'm afraid I'm still having issues with this

 

Text(ThisItem.'Expense Value',"[$-en-GB]£###.00")

 

Is the code I'm using to display the Expense. Works in the browser but not in Teams.

Have attached screen shots

 

It's delaying my role out of Teams - Mighty annoying

Hi,

 

This is the same issue I am having, so I think it belongs here as well.

 

Looks to me almost like the in-app browser that Teams is using isn't applying regional settings. In fact, I've just tried the Teams Web app and that is applying UK formatting, so this is a limitation of the Teams Desktop client.

 

Regards

Re: PowerApps in Teams showing the incorrect Date format

In Teams settings there is a Language selection option - it refers to the date and time format. 

 

You would think that this would also change the currency.


There is no UK Keyboard option. I've just tried the German Keyboard but it still displays in $ not Euro's

 

Anyone got any Ideas???
