Correct timezone in email template?

I have this email template:

The event ${object.event_id.name} that you registered for is confirmed and will be held from ${object.event_id.date_begin} to ${object.event_id.date_end}..

The fields date_begin e date_end are datetime fields and when the email is created the hour that appears is the date saved in database and not the hour in the correct timezone ...

Do you know if there is something like formatLag available in the reports?

There is the email_template_dateutil module in OCA/server-tools:


This module adds the format_date filter in the email template environment, and can be used like this:



This will use the current user's timezone by default, or the server timezone, or you can pass in your own timezone.
