Universal setting to display all time in local time zone (BST/U.K. time)



We currently get supplied date/times in UTC format from a system and have to convert these to BST in the database so times display in required U.K. format.


I believe power bi service still displays times in UTC format.


Is there a simple one setting way for power bi service to disaplay all UTC times in BST/U.K, time without having to convert each and every time to BST either at database level or in power bi itself with separate measure

Hi, @po 


You can try to change the date format by setting the region in Power BI Desktop-File-Options and settings-Options-Regional Settings.


You can also refer to the following links, which I hope will help you.
