Description

Hi All,

Would it make sense to set to the daulty UTC timezone to match the NYC timezone (currently UTC -5)?

I noticed today and several times before when creating posts, it will say they were created 5-6 ahead. I can see how this might create issues if professors have due dates set for midnight.

I imagine that setting the default timezone to match NYC would make sense as a default for most CUNY classes. What do you all think?

Tested default here: https://testingdefaultutc.commons.gc.cuny.edu/wp-admin/options-general.php
See screenshot.
