Changeable Time Zone
Allow the data in the visualization apps to be shown in a user-specified timezone other than the browser's default. Additionally, allow this feature in the raw data view as well.
It is not just the format. Since many of us travel around the world, and since the equipment we monitor can be in any time zone, it is important that the time zone displayed in the timeline be correct and correspond to the time where the data was taken -- in the time zone where it happened, not some arbitrary time zone based on my location or the location of your server. Furthermore, all times shown should always have a time zone stamp, say, GMT, EST, or whatever. Not having a time zone posted with the time is akin to saying the length of this stick is 2. 2 meters? 2 cm? 2 inches? Huh? Please make time zones available and ideally adjustable in your data. Thanks.
Looks like this is two issues.
1- the ability to localize the time and date format. and
2- the ability to define the time zone of visualized data using a pull-down menu rather than a call to the browser's or system's time zone setting. Many of us have customers around the world. This is easier to support them than constantly changing our system's time zone.
Yes please. I'd like either dd/mm/yyyy or yyyy-mm-dd.
Free choice would be excellent though.

I'm in the UK and we use a the dd/mm/yyyy format for dates. Currently the platform defaults to mm/dd/yyyy format.
It would be great to get the ability to choose you're localisation settings.
