Teams does not use regional settings correctly
Teams overrides regional settings from Windows 10 and shows dates incorrectly. I want to use english UI because of international environment but correct local regional settings for dates, times etc. This is not possible now. Please fix so that Teams follows Windows 10 regional settings or that I can keep UI in english but regional settings correctly as in my country.
why is Microsoft still hiring developers and programmer that disrespect the world. we are in 2020 and not in the 1970's anymore. why still not respect the machine regional setting and not change them why still confronted with inferior programmers and developers that still not understand the world and that people have 24 hrs clock as well the time notation is different .am/pm is not even a standard.. respect the regional setting of the user and respect the organisation

Totally agree! It should be possible to display date and time in the correct regional format even if you choose English as app language.
When I use a date picker in power apps, the date is shown in dd/mm/yyyy correctly in the web browser version but shows as mm/dd/yyyy in Teams.
I have found comments from MS (see link below) that this 'bug' has been fixed if we create a manifest for Teams store. This is incredibly difficult and should be fixed fully.

Apparently I modified some files at 6.48AM, which is presumably what the time was in some part of America when it was about 2PM in the UK. It seems ridiculous to me that Teams doesn't use the correct regional settings, please sort this out!

I agree on this. I typically run all software in English if that option is given, but I really want my dates and numbers in my local format.
I fully agree. I hate seeing AM/PM, when i've configured 24-hour Clock in my Regional Settings. Please fix in Microsoft Teams.
Calendar shows a 24 hour clock on the left side, as does everything else on my PC, but when scheduling a new event in Teams it reverts to the annoying AM/PM 12 hour approach.
My problem is with currency the Power App is programmed to use £. In teams it shows $.
The App works correctly in Browsers its only in Teams!!!
Pretty Please fix this!!

When pulling in a PowerApp the regional settings are defaulting to US rather than the UK settings on my machine and in my web browser. If viewed via the web browser (either on the PowerApps site or the Teams site) it is fine, the issue is with the desktop client.
