Display UTC datetime in client's local timezone

In my dataset, I've got datetime values stored in UTC. I need to display it in the client's local time. Is there a way to for reports published to the service to display the UTC datetime in my client's local time zone? Clients are spread across multiple timezones.

Hey @nwrong ,

 

unfortunately, this is not possible.

 

But maybe you might consider this idea.

 

Create a table, that contains the user and their offset in accordance with UTC. Then you can use the USERNAME() function to retrieve the current user and use this inside a measure to transform the UTC timestamp into the time of the user.

 

Regards,

Tom
