2521148 - Number field format is different on form than in Development Plan

Symptom

Custom number fields that appear in correct format in the Development Plan, do not reflect same format in PM forms.

Environment

  • Development Plan
  • Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

  • Viewing a number field in the Development Plan will display the correct format for that locale.
  • For example, the number, expressed in US format: 100,000,000.25

  • And in the German locale: 100.000.000,25

However, in the PM Form, this format is not respected:

The commas/ decimal for separating every three digits does not appear. 

You will see the same result when reporting on the Development Plan with Ad Hoc:

Cause

PM forms do not currently support localization on custom number fields - expected behaviour.
