Display date in localized format
All dates displayed within Azure portal and billing sections are in the USA format - mm/dd/yyyy, which is very confusing for non-USA users. Format should ideally be based on user's localisation settings.
This is in our roadmap, we will update here once we have a firmer date set.

Doh - just read the comment below. Yes, it has been implemented. The above "PLANNED" needs updating...
Rob Nicholson commented
Is this still not implemented? Just created a new Azure system for a client based entirely in UK West and all the dates are in USA format? Very confusing... Is Azure a serious system??

This is ridiculous - get a grip
You can customise date format via the Portal Settings gear icon -
I would like to select the timezone and the format. e.g. ISO
This should be corrected. Please do the needful!

Just referred here from Ticket #:16194765 to 'vote' - consider this my vote
I would like to be able to set up the date as dd-mm-yyyy (06-May-2019)
Two words: Trump Syndrome
And again still ignorance...
World population 7.442 Billion. USA population 325.7 million. When will Azure be ready for the other 7.1 Billion?
Would you please consider thinking about some user friendliness for admins outside the USA?
Please add the possibility to change date/time formats.
4 years later and this still isn't available.
No wonder Amazon is eating your lunch.

Any modern web application should choose the format depending on user's settings. That's a shame the portal can't do that.
Davide de Caires commented
At a minimum default settings should be:
- 24 hour clock
- yyyy mm dd date format
Fully agree with: "Format should ideally be based on user's localisation settings."
24 H format please for time data !!
Also a plea for this. It is ridiculous that most of the world has to put up with an incorrect format.

Can I add another plea for this - when we first started using Azure we were told it was due to be fixed - and a year later still waiting. As a UK based Azure Customer the US dates are extremely annoying and open to confusion. Every other Microsoft product I can think of handles international date formats better than this.
Please switch the portal to ISO date formats. That will prevent confusion during the change.
If you switch it to my local settings (DD/MM/YYYY) then it won't be immediately obvious if the dates are still American or local.
Also is there an ETA on this?
It doesn't seem like the type of thing to take over a year to fix.

Unless you want to offer full customisation or culture specific (which, is often wrong by the way - for example, I'm British but actually prefer ISO-style date formats YYYY-MM-DD and not DD/MM/YYYY) date and time displays, then using an internationally recognised standard format (in the case of dates ->ISO 8601) is always a better experience for a global audience.
Clearly the 'World Ready' tenet wasn't checked here...
