Wrong time zone in reports


It seems that SAP ByDesign stores dates in GMT time zone. As a result in all reports the time is wrong when you are not in GMT, which is quite annoying if for instance I want to have a report of meetings for the coming week.

Is there a solution to this problem? It is for instance possible to add a calculated field with the time, but can I also add 1 or 2 hours to that date?

Thanks for you ideas.

    Hi Thomas,

    You can change the Time Zone setting in sap bydesign depending to your time zone.

    Please refer below.

    • Hi Toke Kit,

      Thanks for your advice. In fact my time zone is correct, it is UTC +1. Which means that with summertime the difference to GMT is +2 hours.

      When I create a meeting in the CRM for instance at 15h SAP will store the data in GMT, meaning 13h GMT. On the screen it is not a problem as it still shows the meeting at 15h because I am in UTC +1. However when I create a report I only can get the GMT time, meaning 13h.

      Hope it is clearer now what the problem is.
