Re: Localtime don't work in Data Flow

Hi @rafael1xkr ,

SwitchZone function not real changes stored date time, it only change displayed datetimezone of datetime values.
For power bi service, it will convert to UTC format. So these values you used SwitchZone function to modify display timezone format will change back to UTC format.

Notice: if you direct calculate on these datetime values, they will keep changed datetime value and convert to UTC format.

Re: Localtime don't work in Data Flow

HI @rafael1xkr ,

AFAIK, current power bi service only support UTC datetime format. If your table contains datetime with local timezone format, it will be converted be UTC formula.

For your scenario, I think 'localidate' not means the data flow datetime zone regions.

Re: Localtime don't work in Data Flow

Other example, I used a score card to inform last update

I created the formula in M

= DateTimeZone.SwitchZone(DateTimeZone.LocalNow(),-3,0)

When I updated in Power BI Desktop it return the hour correct
But when update in Power BI Service don't consider timezone

Image below you can see in Power BI Service don't consider timezone of -03:00
