NVivo Preferences - Display

NVivo lets you choose whether to use local or universal date format when inserting dates into sources.

Preference Explanation
Text Date Format

Choose the date/time format which is used when you insert the current date and time into a source. You can select:

  • Local Format (Default)  Use universal time (UTC) converted to your local time zone.

  • Universal Format  Use UTC (coordinated universal time). UTC is the reference time zone from which all other time zones around the world are calculated—it is the successor of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
