Can Coresight time travel?

More specifically, I would like the ability to switch the time zone context to be that of one of many connected PI & AF Servers that sit in multiple time zones - and not always use my client's time zone. Similar to the Client/Server time zone facility of ProcessBook.

 

If I sit in time zone A, another user in time zone B, with a PI Server in time zone C, then when talking with the user it is easy to interpret conversations within the context of our client times that are different to each other. Even if we talk in terms of times of the PI Server time zone we still need to mentally convert to our client's time zone and be mindful of that in conversations.

 

What happens if we programatically create a display and set the COG time context to 01-Jan-2013 00:00:00 to 02-Jan-2013 00:00:00, is that converted & stored as UTC in the CoreSight database so the display when opened is the correct context for each client in different time zones? (I haven't tested this yet.)
