    Recording job times across all time zones

    by craig1641627259 ·

    We have a cleaning application (Android & iOS) that records jobs by time and date. These records are sent to a webb application on Google Firebase. The problem we have is the date and time recorded on the web application is converted to the local time of the server and not the actual time of the job. Example, a job done in Singapore at 0**8 hrs (GMT+8) will show in the web application hosted in Sydney as 1218 hrs (AEDT). We want it to show on the webb application the actual time of the actual job in its own time zone.

      If you can’t configure this in the web app, it’s time for a change request to the maker of the web app.
      Or find or make another web app, that does what you want, yourself.

      While your request may sound reasonable at first, wait till you encounter “all the time zones” of the world such as listed at https://www.timeanddate.com/time/time-zones-interesting.html where you have half hour and even a few off by 45 minutes.

      Pile Daylight Savings on top of that and it’s quite the job.

      To get this working on your web app, expect to pay if you demand it be “correct” for anywhere in the world.
