A date or datetime does not reflect the expected value for the user or the time zone.
When setting the value for a date like so:
pv!myDate = date(2016, 08, 17)
The displayed date is sometimes one day prior:
The variance seen is the GMT offset for the user or Appian-wide time preference being applied. The date set in the example above is equivalent to:
"08/17/2016 00:00:00 GMT"
The date is set in GMT and, by default, does not contain the GMT offset for the User.
gmt(date(2016, 08, 17))
This article applies to all versions of Appian.
