Hi -- How are people dealing with the fact we can't convert dates in the grids to local time?

    I haven't run across this yet (waiting to hit another milestone before using the dashboards), but if you are able to reference the grid cells with JavaScript, there is a function for converting them built into the portal:


    Running this from within $(document).ready(function() { .... }); should work, in theory, if you can iterate across the grid and plug in the yourDate (my name for it) param for date cells.

    Having said all of this, maybe someone else has a simpler way of accomplishing the same?

    This date formatting doesn't work properly for date sorting. Using '111' appears to fix the sorting of dates in the grid views.

    SELECT WorkItemId, CONVERT(varchar,Created,111) + ' ' + CONVERT(varchar,DATEADD(hh,-6,Created),108) [Created_Date] From WorkItem

    Cireson released a fix with portal 7.3 that it adjusts the dates from UTC to local. 
    However there are some bugs that are scheduled to be fixed in 7.4 for other date columns. 
    I removed all the converts and it works on Create date column
    Of note when using the convert it changes to string so depending on your convert code it could sort in an unexpected manner.
