The date format is fixed to mm/dd/yyyy, could this please be selectable based on your region - for example we use dd/mm/yyyy
Thank you for your patience and feedback. We’ve found a fix for this issue and are working hard to implement it quickly. We will update this thread once it has been tested and implemented.

We are still waiting for this solution to be applied.
Come on Microsoft, a tiny proportion of the world uses the US date format - (about 4%); it's a non-standard, minority format.
Please get the fix out as incorrect date formats create real world governance and clinical risks in our industry
Has this been deployed as yet?
Also I assume you will correct the calendar function to comply with international standard ISO 8601?
Could we get an update on this? It's been 9 months to implement something that really seems like it should be relatively simple...
Another bump. Shouldn't take this long to do a date fix to not be in US dates. How is this still a thing.
What is the update on implementing this basic functionality to configure date format?
Come on Microsoft, this sort of thing should not be an after thought.
I absolutely can't believe such a basic piece of functionality was missed out - we're thinking of moving away from Planner is it's completely unusable to have due dates in the wrong format
any update on this feature being fixed?
Any update about this???
Please can you provide an update on this.
Please share us the solution , we want to change the date format asap
July 25th was the last entry on here and still I don't see a resolution from Microsoft on September 27th (or 09/27 as I obviously should be saying it!)
February 5th to September 27th is a ridiculously long period to implement a simple piece of functionality to just select the correct date format as you can in all other products in the Office suite.
This is a released product so please can someone from Microsoft come onto this thread and advise on the progress of their fix and confirm an ETA for the fix release

Its now September and this item still hasn't been fixed. We are struggling getting user adoption for the tool as it is a common excuse, which is fair enough, until the dates are fixed we are not going to use it. it shouldn't require 8 months to get this fixed. how do we get a reply from Microsoft?
Oh look, we are still waiting, what a shock! Maybe they got the date format wrong in their planner and they think they're still on schedule :-)
Please implement! This halts implementation...

Wouldn't this all be averted if we could agree on using the ISO 8601 format? YYYY-MM-DD
But, yes, please, at least give us regional date format choices.
Any update on the DD/MM/YYYY format being implemented for Planner please, so frustrating using the US version of dates when your so used to using UK dates. thanks
Hi Planner Team, what's the status of this issue after 8 months of hard work?
While your at it can you please stop trying to change the alphabet? The alphabet starts with the A, of Andorra, not with the U from USA.
