The French Canadian time format as per standard pattern is am/pm. The UI Fiori is not currently designed to handle this time pattern. UI Library Control (Time Picker) provides the selected time in a universally accepted pattern.
Working on the system to handle the time pattern will fall as an enchancement. No definite timeline yet as to when this will be enhanced.
Since the system is not designed to handle this time format pattern, addressing the limitation will be covered through an enhancement.
There is a known workaround though so that Instructors will still be able to record completion using the French Canadian locale. Follow the steps mentioned below to do so. A work document with screenshots is also attached for a more detailed steps.
I. Create a new 24-hour time format pattern
References > Calendar & Time > Date Format Patterns > Add New (link)
Date Pattern ID: HHmm (this can be anything)
Description : 24 hour format (this can be anything)
Pattern Type: Time
II. Add the time format pattern to the Locale: French Canadian
References > Geography > Locales
Search for the French Canadian Locale and Edit it
Go to the Time Pattern tab and click on the “add one or more from the list” if the 24 format is not yet there
III. USER SIDE > PREFERENCE (OPTIONS AND SETTINGS)
Choose the 24 hr format pattern
