Support for EDTF Date formats within PowerApps

Hello All,

 

We would be working on several Federal projects during the next few years and some of the Federal agencies have strict guidelines to store/manipulate/display date fields in EDTF date format.

 

Can you please let me know how I can display and save date fields in a Canvas app/CDS datastore, in the EDTF Government Date format? I tried poking around with parsing but I really could not get far and from what I could see, the typical ShortDateTimeString and LongDateTime etc.  date formats are supported in PowerApps but not EDTF.  It is an absolute  requirement for us unfortunately.

 

Any pointers to implement EDTF, would be highly appreciated.

Thank You!
