How can I unify the time in a workflow email with the UI time?


Currently, the workflow email mentions time which is one hour behind the UI time. The datetime is inserted into the workflow email template with the following snippet:

$workflowHistory.activeStep.approvalDate; format = "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"$


The date in the workflow email uses server time (UTC), whereas the date in the UI is according to the browser's timezone. To unify it, use $workflowHistory.activeStep.approvalDatePartitionDefaultTZ$ and set Default Timezone in Configuration according to the user's browser timezone (e.g., Europe/Vienna). This way, daylight saving times are taken into account.
