If I include the order date in my order confirmation email template via ...

Order Date: {{var order.created_at}}

..., the resulting order confirmation emails contain the order date in UTC/GMT time. I would prefer the date to be shown in the timezone configured for the store. How to do that?

  • did you get any solution ?

  • No - the entire task (with this subtask) was taken over by a remote colleague. I do not know if or how he fixed it, sorry.

The Timezones are configured par website and not per storeview, so you can set them for the website who contain all the storeviews.

Admin > Stores > Configuration > General > Locale Options > Timezone > GMT (UTC)

  • Thanks @prince; I had the correct timezone set in that place already. We operate multiple websites; timezones are set appropriately in the websites. Sorry for confusing the wording. Order time in email templates is still shown in UTC.
