Time zone tables


The time zone rule table is deprecated. The time conversion calculation is now provided by Microsoft Windows. Refer to this article for more information: Microsoft policy in response to daylight saving time and time zone changes.

The time zone tables can be used when you write code that works in multiple time zones. The following two read-only tables in Microsoft Dataverse contain time zone information:

  • The time zone definition table stores basic information about each supported time zone, including the time zone code and the standard time zone name.

  • The time zone localized name table stores the localized time zone names.

The following table lists the messages that are related to time zones, but don’t refer to a specific table.

Message Description
GetTimeZoneCodeByLocalizedNameRequest Retrieves all the time zone definitions for the specified locale, returning only the display name attribute.
LocalTimeFromUtcTimeRequest Retrieves the local time for the specified UTC time.
UtcTimeFromLocalTimeRequest Retrieves the UTC time for the specified local time.
