Use same date and time format as in my computer's settings
Many people like to use English as their display language, but get confused with the US date format: 11/06 is October 6 in the US, but June 11 in many other countries. Why not display the date according to the setting in Windows?
Same goes for time, of course, where many use 24 hour format instead of am and pm.
This feature is still on the backlog.
At least, once you change it in your settings to UK format, don't let every update revert it back to US format.

Is this really something that cannot be quickly corrected.
I use English as the language of the OS.
But I use DD.MM.YYYY type settings for date and a 24hour a day clock.
Not the silly and illogical US style of date. Or as unusable 12 hour clock. For date I do not see the month written as text to be a solution. Quick checks and overview with a glance is impossible as there is a need to read not just comprehend.
Which is earlier 11.5. or 9.2. or which is earlier October 11 or November 9
How can such thing as this take ages to be corrected. It has been done in the OS. Should not be a problem in other places... Or is this just some boring change not any "wow", why the "agile" developers do not like it.
This is a big issue for many organisations. I cannot use any other language than English for the Teams since every heading is changed and the use is difficult when helping people in other countries.
Settings should be taken over from the regional settings of the user. These settings are important in an international context. These settings rightfully so are done on OS level and should not be tampered with in the application.
If you have a joint development team in UK and USA a date like 10/7/19 can be ambiguous. Does it mean 10 July 2019 or 7 October 2019 ?
A solution is to explicitly show the month in letters, e.g 10 July 2019.
Please enable this date format.
Thank you, Alistair Morfey
this really makes teams feel like a beta-version
For international usage especially in large companies it is vital to use the same date and time format as in the computer's settings.
If you have to leave in US format at least use words rather than numbers.
ie 11/05 ie write Nov 05. Less confusion for the rest of the world that doesn't use this system.
Still in the backlog? 5 rows of code to correct...
This is annoying and make meeting scheduling impossible in some cases because this weird time system. We have 24h clock not stupid 12h...
A default installation should take the date/time format of the computer's system settings. Give the user the option to change it, sure, but make it correct by default!
Making this setting read from Windows 10 or a globally setting from Teams Admin portal would be great.
Seriously Microsoft. This is basic functionality that just needs to be fixed. We're having issues scheduling meetings in Teams because time zones are incorrect. How could we ever migrate our users from Skype before this is in place? This should NOT be in your backlog.
Fix the date and time formats ASAP, please!
Same issue in macOS.
Same problem here. Have to manually adjust Timezone every time I book a meeting.
Still wrong timezone when creating Meetings in Teams on mac. Have to manually update it.

Hi MS Team,
Data/time format should be picked up from systems settings.
One my Mac, I am using 12Hr time format, but Team is showing 24Hr time format.
It is confusing and counter productive.
Kindly take this up on priority.
To NOT use the windows regional settings is something I expect for some bad obscure app, not a microsoft app. Fix now!
