Add time zone support to all EMS modules, forms, reports and tables
Online marketing is performed by different users in different time zones. Each of these needs to be sure what date/time they are scheduling emails for or reviewing activities from. The Online Marketing modules must translate server times into their chosen time zones, and into the site time zone by default.
On behalf of the Kentico PM team, I want to say thank you for sharing your idea with us and the ever-growing Kentico community.
As this ideas has not been active for past months and it doesn’t fit our product vision, I’ve had to make the tough decision to close this post.
But we still need you! Continue sending your ideas to us, after all nobody knows what is needed more than the users.
This is a great idea, we've recently run into this issue using Azure. We have to keep re-explaining to clients and marketers that the times they're seeing in the EMS and forms are UTC, rather than their respective timezone (CST). This timezone issue is causing a lot of confusion, and frustration.
Thank you Michael for you feedback! I will keep the idea opened and wait for more supporters.

The primary issues are had in Email Marketing with setting send schedules and viewing past sent times, which necessarily means that Email Queue sent times need to display in the local timezone as well; and in Contact Management with viewing activity times.
