Hi,

I am an administrator for a school and we are using the Office 365 for education. We got all the apps. And are just beginning to see the light in MS Teams.

 

There are just one thing that bugs me around the apps. And specially in Teams. And that is the timeformat. Its a mix between 24hour and 12hour. The meeting tab in Teams are all in 24hour. The tasks tab is set in 24hour.

 

The same problem is around all the new apps in portal.office.com - Like in the new StaffHub. A mix of 24h and 12h.

 

What to do? I've set the timeformat to 24h where that is possible.

 

Have a nice weekend,

Rasmus

For any Exchange-related objects (StaffHub included), you can use the Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration cmdlet to configure the Time format: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351103(v=exchg.160).aspx

@Vasil Michev It is not possible to manage Office 365 groups like normal mailbox, unfortunately. There is userVoice about language of Office 365 and StaffHub in general - so it will take settings from your windows. Hopefully it will be here soon.

Right now there is no option..

You do realize this is a 2y old thread, right? :) Back then, a scheduling mailbox was used, for which you can set the calendar configuration just fine. Things of course change fast in the cloud...

@Vasil MichevY Yes I do realize :) just wanted to make an update.
