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
As an update, since we’ve still been seeing issues around date formatting, so we’re pursuing another fix that should help: If you’re using Planner within Teams, we will default to using the same language/local as Teams.
If you’re seeing this issue persist outside of Teams and your language/locale is set properly for your Office account, please let us know in the comments below!
The Planner Team
Please sort the date format, totally unacceptable to charge customers for this!

I played with MS Planner for 5 minutes. Spotted the UK date problem. Went straight back to Trello. The other thing I'd like to see is colour options for the individual buckets. But useless to European project managers and teams as currently configured.

Can't use it without this - due dates will just cause pure confusion!
I agree. This would be more useful if it was possible to change
A very careless and clueless omission by a billion-dollar company. Fix please.
Yes, this needs to be tied to the Office365 settings. Users keep getting confused because every other date is in UK format but Planner, and only planner, is stuck in US format.
Agree!!!! Our business is in the UK and this is very confusing for us - please please sort asap! I think there's actually a setting somewhere where you can say UK or US date format - we tried setting everything in Office 365 to UK but still The Planner insists on being US format. This will cause probs, pls fix! Cheers,
Agreed!! I'm using planner to organise staff and having the dates in the US format is going to cause me problems because I get very confused when the months could be days!!

This is crazy, we need international date format please!
I don't understand why the format is not linked to our global Office 365 settings.

Yes, this drives everyone outside the US nuts. Please, please, recognise that no one except the US uses this illogical date format and provide options for dd/mm/yyyy and yyyy/mm/dd used by the other 7.7 billion people in the world.

Please use ISO 8601 date formats as it is a very good international standard for date and time.
