Date format!!

New Contributor

Hi all,


We can't promote the use of this great tool until the date format is anything other than the US version. For instance, today is 14/3/2018 for us in the UK, not 3/14/2018  !!

I'm watching the progress of this bug very closely.

Hi Mathew, If you set your locale to be en-GB in O365 settings and enter planner through the O365 App Switcher we should be respecting it in Planner. Also if your browser locale is set to en-GB we will respect that as well. We are looking at supporting the case of navigating directly to and retrieving your O365 setting to show the format correctly.
Mathew - If you navigate to we will respect that throughout your session so that is a quick workaround to getting the date format you need.

Thanks for the reply. You're right! Through the O365 App Switcher, my local is picked up. Sometimes I go in this way.

This fix might be new(?)

I think I've worked out that... when in a SharePoint site (of an O365 Team Site), if you add a planner link to the left hand shortcut panel (via the 'Edit' button), you get a ""   link, not a

""   link!


does that make sense?
