Glide picks up the time from user devices (‘current time’) which is fair enough but annoying and causes issues in some cases.
- my telemedicine app has users and agents (video call)
- both are in different apps, but working on the same glide table (TestFlow)
- sometimes the user sets values, sometimes the agent
example - agent time stamp drops put on the test cassette… to start a timer
If an agent is in a different time zone to the user, the agent time is used. So…. It’s 1600 for the user, but the agent might be 2 hours ahead so the time is set at 1800 (in the future!)
I can work around with ite checks in a clumsy way, and no, I can ask the user and agent their time zone all the time, even for on boarding.
A better solution would be a second time - the System Time. Unless I’m missing a trick.
