User phone is set to different language

Hi team power users

  • My colleagues phone language is her own language.
  • When they submit data, the 'Day' field comes through to Sharepoint in their language.
  • This then goes to Power Bi in their language
  • Photo below

Question

  • Can Power Apps or Sharepoint change that field into English automatically?

 

Thanks

@JerryH 

You should be extracting the Day from the date rather than storing the actual text value of the Day.

Your Day formula then would simply be: Text(ThisItem.theDate, "dddd")

This would then show as Saturday for those bringing it up in English and sâmbătă for those bringing it up in Romanian.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

HI Randy, 

I accepted solution of:  Text(DatePicker1.SelectedDate, "dddd"), however the Day field still comes through into Sharepoint as Romanian.

Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks

Jerry
