Timezone for email alert

I am writing to seek your guidance regarding two specific requirements related to QuickSight. I would greatly appreciate your assistance in understanding how to change the alert time zone from PDT to another timezone, such as UTC, EST, or GMT+8. Additionally, I would like to learn how to ensure that the alert notifications are displayed directly on the QuickSight dashboard.

Could you kindly provide me with detailed instructions or any necessary steps to accomplish the following tasks:

  1. Changing Alert Time Zone:
  • How can I modify the default alert time zone in QuickSight from PDT to another time zone, such as UTC, EST, or GMT+8?
  • Are there any specific settings or configurations I need to modify to reflect the desired time zone across all alert notifications in QuickSight?
  1. Displaying Alert Notifications on the email:
  • What steps should I follow to enable alert notifications to be shown directly in the email?
  • Are there any specific permissions or configurations required to ensure that the notifications are displayed accurately/fully?

    I want picture in the email display the hour as well in the dashboard

Hi @demola ,

Thank you for your help. However, let me verify what I really want. There are 2 things:

  1. I want to change the timezone PDT in the email to match my current timezone (UTC, EST, …) as its on the chart. For example, the table displays 07/06/2023 at 2:00 pm. It will show on the email
  2. In the email notification, can the table show the hours too?
