Fixed handling of date and time columns in local time and daylight saving time


Internally, SharePoint stores "Date Only" and "Date and Time" columns as UTC values in "datetime" columns.

Because of that, a "Date Only" value of "15 Dec 2018" would be stored as "2018-12-15 00:00:00"; that if the value were stored using a SharePoint site with a GMT regional setting.

If the site had a GMT+1 regional setting, the value stored would be "2018-12-14 23:00:00" (11pm of the day before).

SQList, by default, exports "Date Only" and "Date and Time" as GMT values and that can cause a problem with "Date Only" values as, in the GMT+1 example, the value exported would be "2018-12-14" (the day before) once the time portion is dropped.


By disabling the option "Export Datetime values UTC", SQList applies the time zone correction to the value. In the GMT+1 case it would add one hour to the value and bring it back to its original "2018-12-15 00:00:00", so that after dropping the time portion the value "2018-12-15" would be correct.

An additional complication arises when the value stored is withing the Daylight Saving Time period, because in the GMT+1 case the value stored would then be "2018-12-14 22:00:00" (10pm of the day before). In the GMT+1 case, the +1 hour correction would not be enough and the resulting value would again be "2018-12-14" (the day before) once the time portion is dropped.

In this update, we have fixed this issue so that the correct values are exported, no matter the regional settings and Daytime Saving Time.

See below some screenshots that demonstrate the correct behaviour. 








Note: In the SQList replication, the "Recipes" list has the "Export Datetime values UTC" option selected while "Food ingredients" list has it unselected.
