BUG: Date format has changed to US format in all reports and for all users (Power BI Service)

New BUG:  The date format in all reports on Power BI Service for all users has changed to US format over the weekend, without any of us changing anything.


This issue has been identified all over the world in Germany, Brazil, Russia, Finland, New Zealand etc. as per this new community post:  Re: Different regional configuration Power BI DAft... - Microsoft Power BI Community




We have checked our browser & PC language & regional settings but have not found a cause, nor a fix.

We have not changed any of those settings over the weekend.

Could you please urgently help fixing this as it negatively impacts our external customer reporting?

Hi @Data-Rainer

This is not an idea.  It is a bug and a serious degradation of functionality.

We´re also infected due to this format change. 

For us also thousand separators for measures are in US format now.


Is there an estimation time for solving that problem?

This not only affects dates but also number formatting. so thousand seperator is a comma(,) and not a period(.) in EU

Dear Collegues, there only way to escalate this, is for everyone to raise a ticket with Microsoft for Power BI support.
