PowerApps sharepointlist Timezone

I have set up a sharepoint list with a date column, If I add a record on the date 2017-jan-27 for example.

My powerapps app shows the date as 2017-jan-26. If I change timezone in powerapps to utc instead of local it shows the date 2017-dec-25.

What is up with that, I get it that they handle timezones differently (sharepoint vs powerapps). But this can´t be right.

What am I missing?


The sharepoint list is set to Timezone stockholm (utc + 01), Powerapps are set to local and that should also be utc + 01 on every client (so far).

Yes you can now set that property but I was still seeing odd values showing up.  i.e. Database showing 12/25/2018 and DatePicker control was showing 12/24/2018.  Not sure why that was happening but the control was writing proper date value to my SQL table so some issue in the time zone interprtation of the display control.  I set the DateTimeZone property to UTC and added the proper number of hours. 


Luckily for me, my app only cares about date so I am not even displaying the time and have deleted the Minute and Hour controls.  I am sure you could use a variable set in the OnVisible event and use that to control your dates based off of the current date.
