Airtable always stores all date/time fields as GMT.
You can switch any date/time fields to “local timezone”. The same goes for any formula fields that produce date objects. If you have a formula field that produces a text string that looks like a date, use SET_TIMEZONE().
Thanks. I should have mentioned my field is set for local time zone. It is filled in by automation and the NOW function. I created a new field to set the time zone to EST, but the time isn't pulling in correctly. It looks like it is defaulting to one time (7:00 pm).
