    Local Time Zone for a client

    Oleg Troyansky

      Hi all,

       

      is there a way in Qlik Sense to determine the local time / time zone of the client? Let me explain... The data is managed in GMT, and the server time is managed in GMT. Therefore all QlikView functions such as today() and now() return GMT time.

       

      However, the users are scattered across multiple time zones. Some are located in Chicago, and some are in California, etc... The requirement is to show the data to each user based on the user's location (the local computer, or the browser's local time zone). This would apply to the definition of "today's sales", as well as to the Hourly charts.

       

      So, here is the question: can we find out what time zone (or what is the local time) at the client computer?

       

      thanks in advance for your thoughts,
