Converting Time zone with day light saving


I am trying to do a simple conversion of time zones of a datetime column from UTC to CST and EST. For some reason, I am getting error in this formula:

CONVERT_TZ(`DateTimecolumn`, 'utc', 'cst')

I also tried CDT instead of CST but getting error. I need something which works for time zone conversion as well as day light saving.

    Hi @User2021

    Instead of CST I'd recommend using the country/city name like this:

    CONVERT_TZ(`DateTimecolumn`, 'UTC', 'America/Chicago')

    You can use this in either a Beast Mode on a Card or a Formula Tile in a MagicETL 2.0 dataflow.

    Here's a list of timezone strings:

  • Thanks @GrantSmith you are always helpful!!

  • Hey @GrantSmith this country/city combination is not working. Any other idea?

    CONVERT_TZ(`ColumnName`, 'UTC', 'America/Chicago') AS UTC_TO_CST

    How is it not working? What are you getting? What are you expecting? Domo will convert your TIMESTAMP fields when a card is displayed to whatever time zone your instance is configured to.

  • @GrantSmith It is not calculating daylight saving time.

  • I tagged you in another post where its same scenario

  • Can anyone guide me how to solve daylight saving time problem in dataflow. I have already converted timezones as mentioned above by @GrantSmith
