      Hi,

      We have the Bulk edit deployed to Project online and there is a Project level custom field as Date type (No formula, No workflow controlled etc.) . When I select the value via Bulk edit and it saves nicely but when I reload the data, it move the date value to a day before. while I can go back to a PDP page and set the right value but somehow It doesn’t work with Date field. Tested with multiple date fields but result is same. It always sets the day before date.

      Can you please provide input here?

      Thanks,
      Amit

      Hello Amit,

      That sounds to me like it is caused by the timezone, let me do some testing as if there is a discrepancy between the timezone that the app is saving based on the configured time zone in your instance that could result in the value (e.g. midnight on the given date) resulting in an actual date / time prior or ahead of that.

      Regards,
      Martin

      Hello Martin,

      I did testing around the Time zone settings in Office 365 User profile but couldn’t get it to work. You have a point from App side, it could be saving in different time zone. FYI, I’m in EST.

      Thanks,
      Amit

      Just to say, we are seeing the same issue with our install. If, say, we try to update a custom date field to 2017-06-01 using bulk edit, then view it in Project Centre, it actually gets entered as 31/05/2017 16:00. We are on UK time = GMT+1.

      Thanks,
      Pete
