How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Support for converting UTC dates to local time

Our datasource returns dates in UTC format, but we would like to display these as local time in the generated document.

The local time setting would take the locale setting on the server hosting the Windward engine.

Although an optional feature might be to allow a parameter to be passed to the report generation that would indicate what locale you want your dates formatted in.

    Hello Alastair,

    My name is Adam Jackson and I'm a Product Manager with Windward. Thanks for submitting an idea!

    We think this is a great idea and we will add it to our development queue. We'll add a macro that converts UTC date/time to a Local date/time, and add an option to define what is considered "Local" date/time.

    At this time we don't have any sort of timeline for getting this added, but look for it in the future! Let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.

    -Adam
