Date format in slicer (to show dd/mm/yyyy)

Hi all!

It seems like a topic that has been asked so many times but i haven't been able to get it to work yet unfortunately!


I have on my powerBI desktop a daterange slicer which displays in the dd/mm/yyyy format perfectly.


once published though the slicer date reverts back to the mm/dd/yyyy format again.



I have tried changing the actual data format


and the computer location setting (date time and regional settings) seems correct



and lastly my chrome setting is also set to the dd/mm/yyyy way as well



what else can I try? Have tried to trawl through community posts and responses already.

thanks in advance!

hi @

I went here:


and checked:


is this the one you are referring to?

Check once your PBI desktop  file's regional setting:

Go to File > Options > Options and settings > Current File >Regional Settings.

Hi @ssze 

  1. Open Model view and select the date column.
  2. Open Properties pane and change the data type to Custom.
  3. Your format should read: dd\/mm\/yyyy.

In some resons the slicer doesn't reflect the new format. In this case delete the existing slicer and create it new.

Thank you! But also still no 😞

The column is already in the Date type and date format you recommended.

I also deleted the slicers and then reinserted again.

Any other suggestions? 🙂


Hi @ssze ,


When you view the report in Power BI service, the slicer date formats decided by browser language. Would you please change the language of chrome by: For IE, please refer to
