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.
I am happy to report that this functionality is live now!
A "ToLocalTime() macro has been added to the product and is available in version 220.127.116.11 and later. Thank you for your suggestion!

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.
