CRM 2015 : Update date format for all users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have a situation where the date format is English(US).  

    I already have about 35 users.

    Now I want to change the date format for all users to English(UK), dd/MM/yyyy.

    Is there a way how to achieve this.

    Any help/ guide would be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks & Regards

  • It is probably easiest to ask each user to change their settings.

    It is possible to programmatically change all user settings. You need to use impersonation to update each user's settings in turn, and the changes are to the usersettings entity. However, there are several attributes that you'd have to update, as CRM splits the formatting settings across several attributes.

    Or you could try the User Settings utility in XrmToolbox, though I'm not sure if allows bulk format changes
