2198074 - Hired Date rule for Assignment Profile not functioning as expected


Assignment profile is created using the rule: Hired Date on or after 6/1/2015

When preview users is selected the list includes people hired on 5/31/2015 which is one day before the rule.

The problem is based on the discrepancy between the server timezone and the admin user timezone who is creating the assignment profile.

Since the hired date of a user only includes the date, when a calculation needs to be done a time of 00:00:00 is added for tiemzone shifting purposes. If the user who is viewing the users is in a timezone that is -1 to the server timezone all user hire dates will shift to the day before.


This behavior is by design because the admin user has a preference to show information in their respective timezone.
The rule itself will process correctly as it will be run on the server and will process given a hired date of 6/1/2015
The visual preview of the admin is a product of the timezone shift in the UI and has no impact on the assignment profile rule.
