Users can now configure their timezone. The user's timezone will be automatically set when the user first logs in after this update and can be changed from the user's profile. Users will see timestamps according to their local time, except in generated files such as PDF reports. Generated files use the application's timezone.
The application timezone can be configured via the Settings > General > Functionality page.
Any timestamps on reports, such as those in finding metadata and the
generated_at placeholder you may have on the front page, are reported in the application's timezone. If you want to display the current timezone on the report, there are two options:
- If you have a
generated_at timestamp on the front page of the report, we recommend adding the timezone to the format string. Either
T for timezone or
O for the difference to GMT. See https://www.php.net/manual/en/datetime.format.php under timezones for more options. See Settings > Report Text Boxes. For example, you can change the default
[[GENERATED_AT|Y-m-d H:i:s]] to
[[GENERATED_AT|Y-m-d H:i:s T]] to add your timezone at the end.
- Alternatively, you can use a placeholder component in an assessment section to add the timezone elsewhere in the report. Either by name (e.g., CET) or by difference to GMT (e.g., +0100). Use the
+ button when editing a section, select
Placeholder and choose one of the timezone options.
