The timezone edition is not working properly in Qlik Sense SaaS

Hi, 

Thanks in advance for the help.

I have an environment in Qlik Sense SaaS that has Mexico City's timezone.

Mexico's timezone with the corresponding time in the lower right cornerMexico's timezone with the corresponding time in the lower right corner

But when I create a test app and apply the now(1) function after a reload, I get this time:

My current time is 9:00 am, not 15:00.

Kind regards.

Hello! 

I believe this is an expected behavior as the now() function will return the time from the system clock and not the time set for your user as mentioned here https://help.qlik.com/en-US/cloud-services/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Scripting/DateAndTimeFun...

To resolve this issue you can use the function ConvertToLocalTime.

Here is an example that should work: ConvertToLocalTime(Now(0),'Mexico City')

Hope this helps!
