Can Date/Time column show the local time?

I could not find a way to display the events date/time in local time. It makes much more sense than showing it in GMT. Thank you.

Having the same problem and its now October 2015, so I think this time issue is not bound to get fix. Also I have noticed that daylight savings is also not considered. Would be nice to have, but I guess one can live with it.

I guess that design decision was my choice. When I originally developed this, there were a couple of reasons. Firstly, my organisation always ran servers in GMT only. That was something I just was used to. Also, servers in different countries were casting to a single listener and times including timezone from the source would have caused problems - so in this case, we always used GMT (actually, Zulu, but that's the same thing).

I guess if you're totally local, then I need to think again.

Now that I've started adding more 'meta-data' to each message (e.g. source information, host name, class-name, etc), I could have multiple times and let the user select which one!

Raise a defect! ;-)
