I have a simple automation rule that set OLA/SLA target times based on creation date-time of a given ticket.
As I want to setup different timezones depending on the project/customer location (so timer is set on local time), and understanding that ticket creator personal settings are being taken to define the timezone, I want to make sure that the times are always converted to the expected timezone for that given project (e.g. Europe/Madrid).
To do so, im using the following expression to edit a custom field:
The expectation is that irrespective of the timezone setting of the ticket creator (even if not defined, it will take default system value), the creation date is always converted to the timezone I define, but this is not working properly. Here some real examples:
OLA Response Time Target = May 12, 2022, 5:32 AM ----> Bolivia timezone (-6 hours from my time) + 15 mins
OLA Resolution Time Target: May 12, 2022, 9:17 AM ----> Bolivia timezone (-6 hours from my time) + 4 hours
OLA Response Time Target = May 12, 2022, 11:32 AM ----> Madrid timezone (the same timezone defined on my profile) + 15 mins
OLA Resolution Time Target: May 12, 2022, 3:17 PM ----> Madrid timezone (the same timezone defined on my profile) + 4 hours.
Tried changing convertToTimeZone to SetTimeZone expressions among many other combinations, but always get unexpected results. Not sure if al this is correcto and this is because of the viewer will always see the datetime on local time; if Im doing something wrong; there is a config that overwrites/mess-up my calculations... or it this post does make any sense at all :)
This is a key setup I need as I have multiple projects and countries all over the world so want to make sure the timezone are always correct, irrespective of creator or system config.... Any hint?
Thanks in advance,
My understanding of the time zones, in regards to automation rules, is that they impact:
For each individual user, I would expect presentation of date/times to match their profile.
Are you wanting all users to see the same time zone values, regardless of their physical location and profile settings?
