Time zone transparency
Setting the right time zone is important, so we can show all dates in quintly accordingly (e.g. when a post was published). So far setting the time zone was possible within the personal settings. Users told us it was sometimes unclear what time zone is being used when dates are shown. To improve this experience we have applied the following changes.
Asking for the time zone during onboarding and when adding new users
New customers will now be asked for the time zone to be used during onboarding. When adding new users to existing accounts, the admin will need to set the time zone when inviting a new user to their account. In all cases this ensures the time zone is set proactively in the very beginning.
Setting the time zone within the date selector
All date selectors now transparently share the time zone being used and easily allow to change it in the specific context. On dashboards you can even set different time zones for different metrics. This for example can help with setting a time zone based on the profiles selected.
Transparently sharing the time zone in several contexts
In several contexts where a date is shown in quintly, you will now see what time zone has been used. We always want to make sure you know exactly how to interpret the data in front of you. For metrics, you will find this contextual information right below the chart or table, including the date and its time zone.
