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.

You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.14456 (64-bit). It was last updated on 5/31/17.
My language option in the Teams UI and on the computer is English UK, but all dates/times in Teams have reverted to US format.
This should be an option for sure, encouraged to see it being worked on.
It appears (at least for me) that irrespective of the Profile language setting selected, the date format uses only the US format.

The default language setting should come from the OS.
For overriding these values, you should be able to set the language and the time/date formats separately, like you can in the OS.
For example I usually have all my computer programs in English, while I use the time/date formatting for my country (Norway).

Our international organisation based in Switzerland uses English and French with a different time zone. So having the language and date / time linked is a problem for us.
e.g. We use English as a language but the Amsterdam/berne CET time zone.
When there are settings in the OS for how to display and format dates, time and other stuff, then use it!
If you want the user to be able to override the settings in the OS, that's OK, but then it should be an Opt-In system for that, and it should be at least as good and flexible as the settings in the OS.
Don't reinvent the wheel, use the design guide that Microsoft publish on how to write software for windows.
please add fast .. no-brainer
please refer to ISO date/time on Wikipedia too
Dates are not shown in UK format for upcoming meetings?
Teams application shoud honour my system 24-hour clock setting on Windows 10. It does not. Meetings show on 12-hour clock.
When I schedule a meeting on Teams, time setting is automatically changed.
-> If I set 7:00am, system recognizes it as 7:00 p.m
Please.. Fix this..
Indeed, just conform to the settings I have set in Windows. It's confusing to see a message that looks like it was sent on September 3 ("09/03") when really it was sent March 9.

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.

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?
