For too long, times in Coda have been stuck in U.S. Pacific time. Today, we’ve launched a feature that allows you to set the time zone of a doc.
Formulas in a doc like
Today() will now return in the doc time zone rather than Pacific, and time-based automations will run according to the doc time zone.
Values input in cells will also be stored in the time zone of the doc. New Calendar and Gantt views will also now display in the doc time zone by default, ensuring a consistent view of time-based data in all views and for all users of the doc.
Existing Calendar and Gantt views that showed in the time zone of the current user will not change unless you decide to update them to the doc time zone, and this remains an option for these displays.
We’ve also added new formulas so you can access the doc time zone as well as the user’s current time zone:
Each user can choose a default time zone for new docs they create. By default, this is set to their local time zone if it’s supported.
Supported Time Zones
This update supports a wide range of time zones, including most time zones in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand as well as select other regions worldwide. Due to complexities in time zone data, certain time zones are not yet available. If your specific location is not in the list, you may be able to choose a different location in the same time zone, or an alternative location with the same UTC offset.
