I think that is a feature, not a bug
Once you hit the database, you need one time, not all these timezones, with and without adjustments.

When you download the csv, and are analyzing with Excel, you can use the following to convert:

=(-6*3600+MID(A2,17,2)*3600+MID(A2,20,2)*60+MID(A2,23,2))/(24 * 3600)

The -6 is for Mountain Daylight Time.
For Indian Standard Time, change the -6 to +5.5, I think.

thank you @jameszahary this will help alot of user. I was also trying the same approach but failed at a point.

it should be -5.3.

#8

I use this conversion on my excel =(-5.3*3600+MID(A2,17,2)*3600+MID(A2,20,2)*60+MID(A2,23,2))/(24 * 3600)
but the Time not change this type of value i get 0.216701

#9

format the cell (or column) as Time … you get 5:12:03 AM

I’m not sure about that -5.3 … I think it is 5:30 ahead of UTC, or + 5.5 hours … you can fiddle with that.

Thanks for helping now i get Indian time +5.5 is the correct conversion time

#11

@jameszahary thank you for correcting me. that is great @muthukumar7103. can you a share screenshot of it.

#12

#13

hi friends,
=(5.5*3600+MID(A2,17,2)*3600+MID(A2,20,2)*60+MID(A2,23,2))/(24 * 3600) this formula only convert to IST Time how can I convert Exact date month and Time convert Indian present date time
on my Excel

#14

the date month should remain same. you can have a separate column for date and month.

#16

you have to use the formula to convert time from UTC to IST every time you download data from the dashboard.

#17

Now i download last 2 days data from my dashboard and I selected [6-5-18 12AM to 7-5-18 10AM] but downloaded .csv file showing this date Sat May 05 2018 18:35:06 GMT+0000 (UTC). also changed UTC to IST time format it gives same result.

#18

this is becasue IST is 5:30 hrs ahead of UTC that makes 6-5-18 12AM IST to 5-5-18 18:35:06 UTC. let me see if i can do anything also @jameszahary can you help in this.

The selection is in local time, and the result is UTC – seems to work fine.

May 6 2AM – May 7 5AM returns
May6 8AM UTC -> May 7 11AM UTC … and correct with -6 hours for my timezone

Here is the code to convert the month day forward or back a few hours - as you see the date changes at 6AM UTC for my timezone of -6. Paste this into a cell and format as Date, and change -6 as required.

=DATE(MID(A2,12,4),MONTH(1&MID(A2,5,3)),MID(A2,9,2))+(-6*3600+MID(A2,17,2)*3600+MID(A2,20,2)*60+MID(A2,23,2))/(24 * 3600)
