    System time

    If the time zone support is not activated in your client, the profile area shows the system time of the Optimizely data center. This corresponds to central European time (CET), which may be different from time at your location.

    For example, if you are in London (one hour behind CET) and set a dispatch time of 17:00, then Optimizely Campaign sends the message at 18:00 your time. On the other hand, if you are in Istanbul (one hour ahead of CET) and set a dispatch time of 17:00, Optimizely Campaign sends your message at 16:00 your time.

    Also, daylight savings time may vary by an additional hour compared to your time zone.

    Dates are entered in the format YYYY-MM-DD and correspond to the ISO 8601 international standard. Example: 15th May 2017 is displayed as 2017-05-15.
