Working with Dates & Time

Working with Dates & Time is an important concept when creating, editing, and retrieving content in Agility CMS. 

User Profile Time Zone

Field Level Time Zone

Retrieving Dates & Time via our API

User Profile Time Zone

Selecting the Time Zone Region at the User Profile level will affect entering and displaying dates and times in Agility. The region you select will be saved and Agility will take care of handling Daylight Savings Time if you pick a region that applies. This value only applies to your login for the Content Manager.

Field Level Time Zone

Selecting the Time Zone Region at the Field level will also affect entering and displaying dates and times in Agility, more specifically for the Date/Time Field.

Retrieving Dates & Time via our API

The Time Zone set in your User Profile and the Time Zone selected for the Date/Time Field will NOT affect how the Date/Time Field value is passed through our API. All Dates & Times fetched via our API are automatically converted to Eastern Standard Time (EDT).
