EOF V5 client / server with different time zones

Hello community, we are using EOF V5 client /server installation.

Our server is located in the US, our clients are located in Europe.

We discovered that during filing EOF V5 takes the timestamp from the server to create the application date & time. The system is not using the local PC time from the client.

Is it possible to let the EOF V5 client use the local PC time for filling out the applications?

Dear Kimmerle.a,

at present it is not possible to set the time stamps in the EPO Online Filing client to be represented in the local time zone. The reference used both for storage and display of the time stamp is the server time.

In any case the date and time of filing of an application are defined and set by the time zone of the Patent office server to which one files.
