    The names Samanage uses for time zones don't match the real-world names for the time zones. Please either standardize on the official names of the time zones (Microsoft Time Zone Index Values ) or at least store the ISO Standard UTC offsets that correspond to the made-up time zones listed in Samanage and return those when making API calls to https://api.samanage.com/sites.json.

     

    Thanks!

    What problem will this feature solve?:
    Currently we can't use time data stored in Samanage without doing a whole lot of heavy lifting on our own to match up Samanage's time zone names to real-world time zone names and their UTC offsets.
