Across the top is a date slider to select different months. When I view this on the desktop app it formats dates according to by machine locale (UK dd/mm/yyyy). When I view it online it formats them to US format (mm/dd/yyyy).
Is there any way to override this? ideally it should show dates according to viewers locale but failing that UK would be fine since nearly everybody interested in this viz will be in the UK. Any ideas?
Based on this thread, it looks like you should be able to fix the date format in Desktop that will be consistent when published to Public. So with Tableau Desktop, you should be able to force the date format to be the same (UK) for anyone who views it.
However, I'm not sure of a way to dynamically format dates on Public (server) based on viewer's locale.
