    Yo Yo Yo!

    As I'm building this text message scheduler, I'm seeing the DateTime go in two different ways.

    On the form itself, I'll enter 2019-11-07 05:00:00

    On phpMyAdmin, it appears like this: 2019-11-07 05:00:00 (same as what I entered).

    On my fabrik list, it looks like the date is 2019-11-06 23:00:00. I presume this is for my time zone. Where is fabrik pulling my timezone information from? Global settings? Does not seem to make a difference if I change my user account timezone settings...

    I intend to use the fabrik scheduler to send texts to twilio. My managers are going to be scheduling texts throughout the country in different time zones. What should my approach be to scheduling these texts? Managers will need to see their stuff in the queue and see the time that they entered.

    Also, will the scheduler execute based on the time in the database, or the time set in fabrik?

    In general Fabrik uses Joomla Global Config timezone.

    Which "On the form" and "On my Fabrik list"?
    A standard Fabrik form and list?

    Or the scheduled task setup form and the scheduled tasks "last run" listing?

    When I talk about the form and a list I'm talking about a fabrik form and a fabrik list.
