    Umbraco Forms submission date in azure

    SO your Azure webapp may assume GMT, so the umbraco forms entries are entered with a GMT datetime as the submitted date instead of whatever your local timezone is.

    This can be confusing to end-users as they will not generally know what GMT is or recognise it by just looking at it.

    The solution here is to use the extremely long-winded timezone identifiers MS uses for Azure.

    On your webapp go to configuration, from there look for WEBSITE-TIME-ZONE (using underscores instead of hyphens) in the list of settings. if it is not present, add a new one and enter your stupid timezone indentification into the value.

    You can find a list here: https://sajeetharan.com/2019/11/12/how-to-set-timezone-in-azure-app-service/

    So to give an example if I wanted to use AEST I would have to enter "AUS Eastern Standard Time"
