Does the datetime component assign to a specific timezone or does it update to the current timezone of the user? If we want to only assign and show times in CST, does that need to be in cloud code or can that be done via the component?
The datetime component will always display to the local timezone that the device is configured.
One option could be to save the datetime as a text value that is converted to CST and always display the text value. Another option could be to introduce a view variable and use a function to convert the datetime to CST for display purposes.
