UTC and LOCAL Time

As we are working on several locations around the globe - we have most data stored with a UTC time format. The ability to present Data to clients with Local time is essitial for our business. The function NOW() in Tableau brings you only data depending on your setting... as we have different servers - we can not switch the setting for each server.

An option to have the getdate() and getUTCdate() like in SQL would solve most problems. Right now - we use a view from SQL - and use this within the calculations with many limitations.

A NOWUTC() would solve this - regardsless of any server settings.
