Advance workflow Set date - time zone
Can someone help me to understand in which time zone Set current date in Advance workflow works?
I have logged in EST zone user profile and all my servers are running in EST zone, but i could see Set current date in AWF captures date in UTC time. This cause issue if i capture time after 8.00 PM EST , that makes to store the next date in system as per UST zone.
Similarly wanted to understand in which time zone default current date in field works.
We have experienced this as well. Is there a resolution to this issue?
Here is a screenshot of a history log where you can see the date and time of the log entry and the recorded dates on the record as the following day:
Here is the screenshot of the corresponding Update Content node in the AWF
We have come to the the conclusion that AWF & Calculation (automated in back end) always functions and displays the result in UTC.
Where entries like history log, last updated etc. displays the values based on the timezone user are logged in. In your case, if you change your time zone to UTC, same date should be displayed in history log, AWF.
So we communicated this to business that this is how Archer works.
