What timezone will show for task due dates on a project with people in locations across the US?

Say that a project manager is in California, so their timezone is set to PST. They create a new Workfront project and assign a designer in Colorado with a profile set to MST. The project manager in California creates a new task set to be due at 5 PM. Will the designer in Colorado see the same due time of 5 PM?

Hi Shannon,

If a PM in California assigns a task to be due at 5pm PST, the Colorado designer will see it due at 6pm MST on their dashboards.

Careful nuance here though - the time-zone in their profile affects only certain things, for others Workfront will use the local/timezone of the browser/system instead so it can make for really frustrating troubleshooting.

Sequence, not dates or time zones, is all that really matters, so I'm learning.
