Include Today not working in Relative Date

Hi,

I'm having problems with the relative date filter. It is currently 4 Sep  7.45 am in Singapore. When I use select "Include today" in the filter pane, 4 Sep is not appearing. Most of the time, this filter and report works fine, but occasionally like now, it is not working well. I have also added a card showing TODAY() is indeed 4 Sep.

Hi, @rovers ;

As you said , the Power BI server’s date and time is based on UTC, and it might be different from your local timezone.

Methods are in high-level as below;

  1. Use DAX expressions to add or deduct some hours from NOW()
  2. Use Power Query functions to get the local time zone
  3. Use a web query to get the local timezone from a Web API.

However, at 8.15 am in Singapore, it is now working fine. This leads me to think that "Include today" is based on GMT timezone. Is this correct, and if so how do I overcome this problem?
