I’m using a Timesheets table to record employee timesheets.
I’m then using an Employees table to rollup the ‘Time Worked’ durations.

I only want to see the ‘Time Worked’ for today.
I have my rollup conditions set as follows: “only show linked records from the Timesheets table that meet certain conditions: Date is today”
However, I’m in Sydney Australia which is +10 hours GMT.

I don’t see any way of offsetting this time (as it’s only a filter within a rollup field). How can I make the rollup filter ‘today’ line-up with Sydney’s ‘today’?

Hey Wootim, I’ve created a base here for you to check out

It seems to filter correctly for me, could you check out my base and see whether I’ve done anything different? I’m on GMT +8

Timezone related stuff is super weird on Airtable and I haven’t fully understood it either and so I know your pain.

Thanks for your response.

After looking at your base, it looks like I had a small issue in the way my base was designed.
I was using a rollup field to pull all timesheet data into a new table, then I was using another rollup field to filter that data into ‘today’ values.
Looking at your table, I can see that I should have used a single lookup field with a ‘today’ filter instead. Two birds with one stone.
