    We should also be able to specify the TZ that the map runs under as a parameter when calling the map.

    Definitely an vote from me and my team on this capability!

     

    We adapted/developed a UTC timezone function that is pretty good but not perfect.  It only works in EST/EDT (although it can be adapted).  That's the key problem we were trying to solve - we need a fixed time reference that doesn't change with Daylight Savings Time.

     

    The function is:

     

    = IF( FROMDATETIME(CURRENTDATETIME(), "{ZZZ}") = "EST",

                      FROMDATETIME( ADDHOURS ( CURRENTDATETIME(), 5), "{CCYYMMDDHH24MMSS}" ),

          FROMDATETIME( ADDHOURS ( CURRENTDATETIME(), 4), "{CCYYMMDDHH24MMSS}" )

        )

     

    We had discussions on this on the IBM forum many years ago:
