Currently ideas portal times are in GMT - would be nice to have these be localized so emails that come through from ideas & updates to ideas display event times in the local times for the user.
We have geo-distributed portal users who would benefit greatly from this
In addition, it is unclear that the times are currently in GMT given the availability of the user timezone setting. Before the localization is implemented, it would be nice to explicitly state that the time is in GMT.
I agree with C Cheng that adding "GMT" to the timestamp would at least clarify in the meantime.
I personally am not concerned about exact times on Comments, but we have gotten questions from customers who are confused by the non-localized timestamp
I'd consider this a bug. From a user perspective, it just appears that the time is wrong. At least add GMT to the label so it is clear what timezone is being shown!
As another user commented, the GMT time zone should be listed at the very least. Our users will be confused and think the time is wrong. Of course being able to customize the time zone would be preferred, and is an option I've come to expect from web apps.
I'll reiterate what others have said: Time zone should be configurable, but at the very least include the time zone abbreviation (GMT).
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
