@anthonycrumley When I set the completed_at attribute (using Time.now) a utc date time is created. I understand that all dates are saved to the db as utc but how should I ensure that the date is displayed correctly to the user in their personal timezone. Currently, the dates are displayed in UTC which wouldn't be helpful to the users.

@saabdoli One option is something along the lines of completed_at.in_time_zone("Central Time (US & Canada)")

@elizabrock Thanks, that's a good solution. I also read that the default time change can also be set app-wide in a config file.
