Re: Timezone in powerapps

This is what I know.

If you are using the SQL Azure Service, all dates and times are stored in UTC format. The good thing is that PowerApps converts the date/time to your current locale, so for users there is no difference.

I use Azure SQL, so if I need to see the time in a different locale, I use a query in SQL to convert to whichever timezone I need.


Remember, Powerapps applications read the UTC time stored in the SQL and they convert it to your current locale.


Hope this helps!!
