Re: Dates reverting to UTC when published to web from desktop

Sorry @GilbertQ, but I do not understand your answer.

 

For example, I have a field Date_Start (dd/mm/aaaa hh:mm:ss) in a table in Power BI Desktop. When I use this field in Desktop, the date is in local french time (UTC +2 in summer or UTC + 1 in winter). But in Power BI Service, the hour is not the local hour but the UTC Hour.

 

For this field, i do not understand how to use the function DateTimeZone.SwitchZone

 

Thanks in advance for your answer,

 

Best Regards

Re: Dates reverting to UTC when published to web from desktop

Hi there

The reason is that all the Power BI servers worldwide have their time zone set to UTC. So if you use any features that get the current time of the system it will then be UTC when your data is refreshed on the Power BI service

I do have a blog post explaining how to overcome it




Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
