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.

Again I say use ISO8601, there can be no confusion then, it is the only sensible way.
It also means if you extract into text you can sort in order, which doesn't work with any other date.
I really find it difficult to understand when there is an ISO standard it is not used.
Just like ISO std for Currrencies, like USD, HKD, GBP it means no confusion. $ can mean many different currencies.
I prefer to have the application be in English but I primarily write using my native language. So ideal for me would be if I had more fine grained control in the language menu so I could have spell checking in a different language. I also prefer to not use AM/PM and I prefer to have the "native" date format.
Use ISO (international standard organization) date and time as default.
How can I change to yyyy-MM-dd and 24 hour (HH:mm) instead of a.m. and p.m.?
1st would recommend adding a "settings" category. When a site is created, it doesn't default to our Time zone, is there a way for it to automatically detect my time zone and set it or can Time zone be available in a users' settings.

24 hour format

Agreed, notification emails in PST timezone has been confusing a number of our users.

Date/Time format should be decoupled from Language. Dear MS you have managed that for years on Windows.
Please learn from that, Thanks!
Charles Yeomans commented
MS should learn to default to ISO8601, it is the only date format that makes sense globally. see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601
I get so fed up with USA date formats on all of the cloud/office file listings.
Hi we have the same problem with french language with hour format (AM, PM). Could youo change this, please?
Yep, this one tripped me up as well. To get rid of the silly am/pm I switched to English (UK) for now.

Not just the meeting tab, also an issue in the other places where dates are shown (e.g. Conversations, Files).
oddly, the conversation detail (chat pane) shows the date in local format D/MM) but the recent chat summary shows it as MM/D. Look like its half way there.
Nicola Rampazzo commented
Notification sent for missed chat/team messages are sent using PST time, so it's difficult to understand when exactly the message was posted. Mail should report time in user's timezone set in his/her profile.
Agree. Or make the date format like Nov 12 instead of 11/12 (which I initially thought suggested i hard read 11 of 12 posts:().
I'm seeing the wrong order issue as well. It gets fixed after a while, but in the meantime the messages are out of order.

My time settings are managed by my company, but for some reason my computer is always one minute ahead of others'. I can change it manually, but it always eventually "corrects" itself to one minute in the future. The messages seem to be out of order only on my computer.

Happening to me and my PC time is agreeing generally - must be a few seconds out.

I have this problem as well, but for Swedish. Seems like the meetings tab does not change after the selected language.

So my language settings were set to English (UK)... why, I don't know, seeing as I'm in Australia. But even after I'd changed it to English (Australia), the Meetings tab still shows US date format (MM/DD).
Other areas correctly show my local date format (DD/MM).
