Subtract 6 hours

I have the following query to show my last refresh in my report. When I upload the report to Power BI services (Web) show time 6 hours ahead of my local time, therefore, need to subtract 6 hours from my query. Please help me by guiding me how to subtract 6 hours from my query, thanks.

Power BI Service is cloud service, you may get the time zone issue when using functions like NOW(), TODAY() since it takes the cloud server's date. You can use  DateTimeZone.SwitchZone function int Power Query to set your local time. Please refer to articles below:

If you just want to workaround this by substract 6 hours, you can create a custom column and add "+#duration(0,-6,0,0)" to your Date column.

Hi Simon,  

This looks good and easy to implement (DST issue aside) but I have a couple of questions:

 

I created custom columns in my tables to track whether a record should be counted in Today's reports and wondering how I would integrate your solution for the service/source time mismatch?  I actually have two columns in one of my tables one for Created Date and another for First Meeting Date.  Would I create your workaround for each column?

 

Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Mike

 

IsTodayCreated = IF (YEAR ( Opportunity[CreatedDate] ) = YEAR ( TODAY () )
           && MONTH ( Opportunity[CreatedDate] ) = MONTH ( TODAY () )
              && DAY ( Opportunity[CreatedDate] ) = DAY ( TODAY () ),
"Yes",
"No"
)

IsTodayCompleted =
IF (YEAR ( Opportunity[First_Meeting_Date__c] ) = YEAR ( TODAY () )
&& MONTH ( Opportunity[First_Meeting_Date__c] ) = MONTH ( TODAY () )
&& DAY ( Opportunity[First_Meeting_Date__c] ) = DAY ( TODAY () ),

"Yes",
"No"
)
