Absolute time range date picker with custom date formats

Hi there,

I customized the date_formats settings in my Grafana board but now I’m having trouble using the date picker for an absolue time range. I always get a message, that the format is invalid.

These are my date_formats settings:

And this is the error message:

What the date_formats setting?

It’s “dd DD.MM.YYYY HH:mm”

We found out that the problem is the “dd” at the beginning where Grafana mixed up English and German. Grafana expected an english entry but the Date-Picker set the german letters. Our quick fix was to remove the “dd” and just use “DD.MM.YYYY HH:mm”
