When an end-user creates a Goods Movement, via MM transactions or confirming an Order, SAP System stores and displays the corresponding Material Document using a time zone which doesn't consider the time zone that end-user is located.
- Material document time zone always shows up with 'UTC'.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
Reproducing the Issue
- Create and release a Process Order.
- Display Material Document generated by the Process Order confirmation and notice that time of entry is not the same.
This is the standard system design for Material Documents.
As per the standard system design, the local time (SY-TIMLO) in the document header is not stored in the database level. This logic can also not be modified via Customizing. It is not possible to display the system date and time of Material Documents in the user's local time zone.
