Allow PowerBI Tenant Admins to update time zone used in Power BI Service

When a report is published to the powerbi service the time zone functionality causes relative date filtering to reset on UTC time. 

 

This causes issues when a user is looking for data "In this day" in the Eastern/Central/Pretty Much any time zone, as the service will start looking at the "next day"  at 7 pm, as opposed to running through midnight and turning over to the next day on the timezone they are in. 

We need a way for the tenant admin to set the timezone they want the Power BI Service to use.

Hi @pricehammond ,

 

There are no settings that can directly implement your needs for now.
However, you can change the browser language and set the Power BI Service language as the default language of your browser to the time zone you want. This needs to be done manually and is somewhat complicated.

If you would like to suggest  feature improvements, you may  vote the idea and comment here  to improve this feature. It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.
