Specifying a time zone for a Date time control

Suggest edit Updated on December 13, 2021
Applicable to Theme UI-Kit applications

To enable users to enter a specific date and time in the calendar picker, change the default time settings to a particular time zone.

Before you begin: In the layout of the form that you are editing, complete the following task: Adding a Date time control to a layout.
  1. Click the control, and then click the View properties icon.
  2. In the Properties panel click the Presentation tab.
  3. In the Time zone source section, select how the application determines the date and time tor the calendar picker:
    • To use the default time zone of the operator's system, select Operator time zone.
    • To show the date and time from a specific time zone in the calendar picker, select Standard time zones, and then select a Java-supported time zone from the list.

      If you leave the parameter blank or if you select an unsupported time zone, the default time zone of the operator is displayed.

    • To use a dynamic value for the time zone, select Property and then apply a data transform or a different transformation type.
  4. Click Submit.
For example: A shift manager working from London needs to schedule a task for an employee in New York. Set the time zone for the Date time control in the Schedule user form to America/New York, so that the manager sees the current time in New York when they click the Start task field.
