      Description

      There doesn't seem to be a way to set the timezone within the CMS or for the user?

      When a user is in a different timezone than the system default the time in date pickers is always "wrong".

      Ideally timezone would be user specific setting, as it's feasible, especially in the USA, that users of the CMS are not just in a different timezone than the system, but different timezones from each other.

      Configuration options:

      property name type description
      show.timezones boolean Enable time zone selection dropdown on login screen
      selectable.timezones multiple string List of time zones available in the dropdown, e.g. 'Africa/Mogadishu', 'Etc/GMT+1', 'CST' or 'Europe/Amsterdam'

      The property selectable.timezones only accepts valid Java time zone ids, as listed by the java call Timezone.getAvailableIDs() or by the IANA spec. IDs that are not valid will not be shown in the timezone dropdown.
