Honor arcade expressions in layer time settings

Discussion created by jaread_DOC on Oct 1, 2018

Hi all,


I'm looking to use the time slider over some data which has UTC dates stored on the AGOL hosted feature layer.


All our application data is handled in local time (NZ), but we're forced to store UTC in AGOL for documented and understood reasons.


I thought we'd found a work-around using Arcade to convert UTC to local time (nice) but this arcade attribute expression is unavailable when enabling time awareness on the layer, even when the arcade output data type is date.


So can the support for time-awareness be extended to include dates/times generated by Arcade?


Or has anyone any other ideas? 


Enabling time - no Arcade option
