    Otto Lindqvist, thank you for your feedback. My apologies for the belated reply. 

    There are no immediate plans to update the time zone functionality in Explore. However, I need to mention that when a user who is not logged in views a public dashboard, the timezone displayed to them is based on the user’s browser setting. It is not always GMT.

    +1 it would be a great addition to set a fixed timezone for Explore Dashboards. 

    My company works across multiple timezones, so having a Dashboard with a consistent timezone would be very beneficial.

    Thanks Eugene for the reply. I need to check browser settings then too, that's new information.

    +1 This is absolutely needed! Working across the globe and marrying numbers that are different for every user to look at is a nightmare. And changing your timezone every time you look at a different report is not feasible.

    I could display various Time Zones on my dashboard using the Formula below. However, with the new update it broke...grrrr

    "" +DATE_FORMAT([Pacific Time Zone],"h:mm a") + ""+ " " +

    "" +WEEKDAY([Pacific Time Zone]) + ""  + " " +

    LEFTPART(MONTH([Pacific Time Zone]),3) + " " +
    DAY([Pacific Time Zone]) + ", " +
    YEAR([Pacific Time Zone])
