      • Respect Office 365 Language settings

        Currently (22. Jan 2016), the UI is in my local language, but my Office 365 settings specify English, please use that and the official language in my region.

        • An option to choose the first day of the week in all calendars

          When switching between my Outlook calendar and the calendars used to assign the start date and due date, I was momentarily confused because the calendar alignment was not the same. It would be nice if there was an option to choose the first day of the week.

          • Planner should follow date format defined in Office 365 environment

            Currently I have Office 365 environment set for Portuguese (Brazil) and date format as DD/MM/YYYY. However Planner tasks display a weird format.

            For example, a taks started on Dezember 7 should display "07/12/2016". What I get in Planner is "07/de 12".

            Planner should simply follow the Office 365 date configuration format.

            • Clean up localization issues

              My team is located in several different geos. When a user in Denmark creates or updates a task, the notifications are sent with Danish UI. Additionally, when a user in Denmark sends a link to a planner item, that link includes the local language coding .. and opens the planner in Danish ... which is fine if you are Danish .. but not so good if you are using Office 365 in en-us .. ... so ... links, notifications etc. should be agnostic of localization ..

              • Enable date format settings on the Edit Planner popup

                Please enable date format and locale settings to be entered when creating a new Plan or editing a Plan from the Planner hub.

                At the moment, the only way of controlling the date formatting and locale in Planner is by inheriting the settings from a parent Team or SharePoint Site's settings. This is fine if you only ever visit the Plan from the SP or Team page, but when reminder emails pop into my mailbox and I click on the task link, or if the Plan is created from the Planner Hub, the dates come up in the default US…

                • multilanguage notifications

                  Notifications are sent in the language of the Planner portal the user uses to create a task. For Global Accounts/ international teams this is not going to work. Ability to set default language required.

                  • Finnish date formatting need correction

                    It's nice that O365 and Planner are localized into Finnish but unfortunately the dates have gone a bit wrong:

                    I can see dates like '31. toukota' which is meaningless for you can't add the partitive case ending (-ta) to the shortened form of the name of the month (touko). You could do that with the full name of the month (toukokuu --> toukokuuta), but best would be to use the short form of dd.mm.yyyy.

                    • Planner language should reflect the user settings in o365

                      The Planner should start in den language the user is setting for and not allways in english.
                      Also when user switch from Teams zu full Planner view the language should remain the same an not change allways to english.

                      • Please enable us to use British style of dates i.e. 3rd July is 03/07 not 07/03 - really confusing for those of us not using a US format!

                        • Planner Notification - localisation of dates in email

                          Would like localisation of the dates in the notification email because at the moment it's in MM/DD/YY format. This will cause confusion for my UK users.

                          • Time zone configuration for files in a Planner Site are not according to user Time zone

                            Time zone in the files site for a planner board should be according to user time zone and not to the data center time zone.

                            The planner boad time zone is working like that but not the files site.

                                    • Bad French translation for Add asignment

                                      The "Ajouter un devoir" expression in French is badly chosen. It means "Add a homework". What is meant is "Assign to someone" which should be written "Assigner à quelqu'un"

                                      • Timezone for calendars are too difficult to set.

                                        I can't set the time zone of a meeting in a planner calendar.
