Disabling AM/PM in timestamp

Hi folks, I usually work on pwer BI Desktop and just started uploading those reports into the cloud. I noticed that no matter what format I choose for my datetime value, it seems as if the Power BI App adds AM or PM and reformats my selection.


I want it to be shown as date and time in 24h format, without the AM or PM at the end.


It seems brutally simple and yet I wasted an hour already trying to figure it out. 


What am I missing ??

Hi @josipinho,

After test and research, the Date in my phone also can't display the format, which is inconsistent with the format in Power BI desktop. I think it is always changed to UTC time. I don't think we can change it in Power BI to mobile support team for more details. The mobile support team email: .


Thanks for the reply Angela.


It just seems so ridicolous that something like this can't be disabled and that without any warning or question the service just changes the format in which my data is displayed...

Hi @josipinho,

You're welcome. I guess it's related to the design behavior of PBI. You can report it to the product team.
