Allow us to set the date format on the portal.
Allow us to change the date format. Since not everybody in the world likes using US dates :)
Dates in Azure have only gotten worse. Some support the regional setting, some don't.
As seen in attached file, when editing an Automation Account schedule the dates follow regional settings. However Next run for a schedule is shown M/DD/YYYY.
There are many example of this in the portal. You really need to define a regional format which will display YYYY-MM-DD then it will at least be obvious to us when a date is not getting the regional settings applied.

Do we have an update on this???!?!

How do we get yyyy-MM-dd format? I don't see a "region" that has that. Why can't we just pick our format like we do in Windows? Or at least provide an option for yyyy-MM-dd. It is an ISO standard format, sortable, and less ambiguous than any regional version. It should also have time in 24 hour format.

This appears to have been implemented by the settings cog in the portal? Status needs updating...
done by settings, see file
David Lapes commented
Why did anyone think that MM/dd/yyyy would be useful in anyway - at the very least get the world to use sortable dates yyyy-MM-dd at least they are easily distinguished
Setting my region to one that should use DD/MM/YYYY in azure regional setting STILL DOES NOT affect that change.
SEVERAL YEARS LATER
Regional settings does the trick :)

Adding to this: Date format in Intune "All Devices" report does not match user selection in portal Regional Format

In storage account the date is displayed as "awful American formatted date time" even if i selected German locale.
2015-01-30 "We are working to enable this feature in the near future".
4 years later ... ???
Note that for me - A UK based user - even with regional settings set as English UK i get those awful American formatted date time.
My first rule whatever I do cloud wise is only look at Azure if nobody else does it cost effectively

Thanks for the regional settings!

This is actually already done. Under portal settings (little gear icon on top right corner).
"We are working to enable this feature in the near future" 30th January 2015!
has it been done yet? I am still unable to change the date format
This needs to be sorted. Paid-for Microsoft products should demonstrate the best software principles, such as localization options.
Is this ever going to be fixed?
I feel we should ***** the US and whatever other country format, let's go ISO and do yyyy-MM-dd and use the internet default it already is, then quibble later about customizing it for whatever stupid country -- or not, and just oblige everyone to accept yyyy-MM-dd.
10/08/1971 is confusing internationally but 1971-10-08 never is (I feel).
Purely from sorting text alphabetically and logical thinking like "place value" this is a no-brainer.

hello Azure team, do we have a new feature/setting to support this request? I believe its a great idea for the user community to see the date time in local time zone indicated by the browser.
This has been under review for edging in three years. The mm/DD/yyyy format is US specific, the rest of the world has a variety of formats - usually starting with the day, rather than the month.
The implications of reading the day incorrectly can have massive impacts on businesses where decisions are made about deployments and versions.
