2849740 - IBP: Planning View Time Periods are displayed in UTC time only


You may want the Current Time Period to be displayed in your local time. The Current Time Period is only based on the UTC time and cannot be converted to the end user's local time.

For example, the end user is working in UTC+8 time zone. However the Current Time Period in the Excel Add-in Planning View is always displayed in UTC time and never converted to UTC+8. It may result that the end user's local time is 2019/10/10 already however the Current Time Period is still 2019/10/09 in Planning View.
