Date Field Time Zone Fix

I have a date/time field that is pulling from an API that is not in my time zone. Is there a way I can convert the timezone to show CST?

Re: Date Field Time Zone Fix

Hi ThePowerBIQueen ,

 

To see you local timezone, use power query function:

DateTimeZone.LocalNow() 

Or DAX function:

LocalTime = now()

 

To change timezone, use power query function:

 = DateTimeZone.SwitchZone(dateTimeZone, timezoneHours , timezoneMinutes )

 

In addtion, please refer to:

Re: Date Field Time Zone Fix

Check out the DateTimeZone.SwitchZone function in Power Query. You can use that to add/subtract hours from your source time zone to your current time zone.
