Hi,

 

Our tenant language is Finnish. My user profile language is also Finnish, but still when I create Office365 Group, the group Sharepoint site language is English and there is no way for me to change that language. How can I make sure that the group Sharepoint site main language is Finnish when I create the group or after I create the group?

Afaik you can't change the default language afterwards! Due to some reason your default SharePoint language is English!

When users create new Team sites from SharePoint you can override this and set another language!

Take a look at the method Tony describes here: https://www.petri.com/sharepoint-online-groups-regional-settings

Regarding time zone settings you can set the default in the new sharepoint admin center
