Reproducing the Issue

Logon with user role 'SAP_BR_INTERNAL_SALES_REP'.

  2. [Create] Sales Order.
  3. Enter sales order data.
  4. Follow menu path: More -> Goto -> Header -> Sales.
  5. Note the 'Created on' time and date.


The fields like the creation date of the sales order have a technical purpose, which is why they use the server date - setup as, timezone UTC.

Business related field such as the document date use the time zone of the user.


This is the standard system behaviour.
