This seems to be a common problem as evidenced by so many forum posts...
What I (and I'm sure many other users) would love to see is:
This should be fairly simple, with the exception of rewriting all the user controls to correctly calculate the offset time. The timestamps in the database seem to be stored in GMT already, so that leads me to believe you are already doing some kind of calculation on the data; all that should be required is to change that calculation so that it respects either the app.config setting and/or the user's profile setting when storing and retrieving data.
Just so you understand, here is a perfect example of my predicament:
The user creates a new 'event' and sets the time to Monday at 7:00
PM. (since the user is located in MST time-zone GMT-7 and the server
is in EST time-zone, GMT-5, the server thinks the user wanted 7:00
PM EASTERN time, which is really 5:00 PM MOUNTAIN time).
Now that event is displayed incorrectly across the site as 7:00 PM and without a feature like what I'm requesting, there is no way
to tell the system - "hey, I know the user said 7:00 pm EASTERN, but
she really meant 7:00 pm MOUNTAIN"
Hopefully this makes sense and someone at Umbraco will pick it up and run with it.
BTW - The more people that vote for this, the better.
You are asking this in the CMSImport feature request forum. This is related to the CMSImport package. The best place to place this request is http://issues.umbraco.org where people can vote on the issue.
