M365 Changelog: Viva Goals – Date Picker in Check-in Modal to Show UTC Timezone

MC649376 – Previously in Viva goals, when making a check-in, the user could update the date of check-in from the check-in modal, which was based on the user’s local time zone. Users in different time zones saw the date of check-in and its representation on the progress graph differently, computation of progress and status also became a challenge. 

Microsoft is unifying the date picker to have the UTC date picker, which means that any Viva goals user making a check-in from any time zone will always see the same date and its representation on the progress graph will be consistent.

When will this happen:

Rollout will begin in late July and is expected to be complete by late August.

How this will affect your organization:

There may be some changes to how the check-ins are represented at the individual objective or key result level.
