Detailed Timezone Support For Canada And Australia
Our timezone-related features have worked well for the United States and all the countries, which fit within a single timezone. However, if you have any customers in Canada or Australia, you’ll be happy to know that we recently improved our search engine to support these countries, too.
Now, you can search for leads in a specific timezone (e.g. country: Canada timezone: PT), or based on a local time (e.g. country: Australia local_time > 9am local time < 5pm).
Read more about timezone support in our previous blog post.
There are some minor anomalies in our timezone-related code, but they shouldn't cause you a headache. For the sake of transparency, they're listed below:
- Australian Central Western Standard Time (CWST) is treated as Australian Central Standard Time (ACST).
- Lord Howe Standard Time (LHST) is treated as Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). In reality, they're 30 minutes apart.
- The whole province of British Columbia (Canada) is recognized as Pacific Time, although a small portion of its south-eastern territory should be recognized as Mountain Time.
- The whole province of Ontario (Canada) is recognized as Eastern Time, although a small portion of its west territory should be recognized as Central Time.
- All +1 867 phone numbers are recognized as Mountain Time, although this prefix is shared by three Canadian territories in the Arctic far north, spanning across Pacific, Mountain, and Central Time.
