Date formatting in App not correct

Hi there,

 

We are publishing reports from power BI to the Apps. 

When I open my report on the desktop app the date formatting in the slicers is showing correctly (dd/mm/yy).

As soon as we publish to the App it changes to (mm/dd/yyyy). The date-time format on my computer is (dd/mm/yyyy)

Does anyone know if this can be changed?

 

Kind Regards, 

Annemie

Hi. The problem here might be the browser. Power Bi Service is prepared to auto change dates and decimal/thousands separator automatically with the browser language. I have my Power Bi Desktop with a windows in spanish that shows dd/mm/yyyy and "," as decimal separator. When I publish to Service I don't see them that way because my browser and the page render option are in english. 

Hope that helps,
