Based on the documentation, Operations Dashboard only supports three number formats: English locale, French locale and German locale.

In Switzerland the following decimal and thousand separators are often used (Schreibweise von Zahlen – Wikipedia😞
Distance: 12'756.2 km
Millions: 10.2 Mio. Fr.
Swiss Francs: Fr. 7'654'321.10

Which means that thousand separators are apostrophes (Unicode U+0027) (or spaces) and decimal separators are points (or commas).

Another difficulty which is often seen is that in Germany the thousand and decimal separators are used the opposite way than in the US and UK:

  • Germany: 123.456.789,123
  • UK, US: 123,456,789.123

It would be great if you could add the possibility to create custom number formats for dashboards so that we can create 

DIN 1333, DIN 5008 and ISO 80000 conform number formats.

What I would expect is a possibility to create the following number formats:

custom digit grouping

Dashboards attempt to format and parse numbers in a locale-sensitive manner. English, French and German locales were pointed out in the documentation as examples, but dashboards support all the locales the ArcGIS Online platform supports (link). Should the dashboard author choose, we offer the ability to override a locale's default number formatting by specifying a pattern.
