Explanation of UTC Time Stamps (Coordinated Universal Time)

ZenQMS uses "UTC" time stamps in the application, also known as "Coordinated Universal Time" in order to avoid any ambiguity on actual time, especially for clients that are operating across multiple zones. The concern around ambiguity

  • There are also problems created when users don't properly set their time zone;
  • Issues when servers bounce through virtual private networks that are in a different zone than the user 


As such, the best practice is to rely on "Coordinated Universal Time" which is abbreviated as "UTC".  So all time stamps across the app are unambiguous, and match the time stamp found in the system audit trail.
