Msft Forms doesn't recognize a submitter's time zone like it obviously should, but Msft says it uses UTC to timestamp submissions. That isn't correct. I'm in UTC-5 (EST) but the Forms timestamp is 4 hours ahead so is wrong. An item submitted at 2.41PM EST is timestamped 6.41PM. What's the deal?

    @Ken Tucker Right - I was thinking of GMT which also adjusts for "summer time". Didn't realize UTC didn't.
