Updating formats in bulk using XrmToolBox

    Is it possible to update a user's personal format settings based on the current customized system format settings?

    In our instance, all users are created and are using the default organizational format.

    However, since then, we customized the current format in system setting. E.g. we changed the settings such as decimal symbol etc.

    Now, I thought it was possible to update all users according to this customized current format set in System Settings using the User Settings. However, that doesn't seem to be the case. The settings that are applied to the users are the default 'English (United Kingdom) settings - without our customizations (e.g. changed to decimal symbol).

    is what I'm trying to achieve possible - or do I have to do it for all users one by one?

    Niels, I remember doing a bulk update on System user settings through XRMToolBox plugin. You should be able to add a plugin and do it I think.

    @Sunil Raheja - I just checked the XrmToolBox User Settings Utility and it doesn't have options for the Regional Settings as indicated by @Niels Lønberg.

    @Aaron Back, MCSE,

    It's the Formats settings at the bottom of your screenshot I'm referring to. However, the changes I have made in the System Settings to the selected format is not applied to the user.

    I can change the format from e.g. English (United States) to something else for the user. But the customizations to a certain format is not applied.
