    Does Tableau handle DateTimeOffset types

      I have a table I'm reading from in tableau and I've been struggling with why some key fields don't seem to be picked up in the data export, in particular a Date-Of-Birth field.

       

      The one thing that I see in common with the fields that I've identified are not being uploaded by Tableau is that they're all DateTimeOffset types (e.g. "1981-03-17 00:00:00.0000000 -05:00").

       

      Does Tableau not handle DateTimeOffset fields?  Are there any known workarounds to get it to load the data, even if it has to drop the timezone offset in the process (i.e. truncate it to a DateTime type)?
