Does someone know how to solve that issue

automatic scheduled actions server doesn't work and I suspect this is the problem

Thanks for your advices 

Hello  Yenthe

But what about the scheduling server action on date

Exemple : I create an order on the 03/25/2016 with UTC+1 time = 10:00 and want it to be dispatched 10 mn mater by email

it means at UTC +1 time= 10:10  and UTC=  09:10  in that case the order mail will have a passed date into the server  and will be dispatched immediatly ?

Thanks for helping

Hello Everyone

To make the scheduler works on Action (like write record ou send email)

you need to upgrade BASE module (in apps) after the installation of the Module Automated Action 

Spent 1 week efforts to kill that issue

Hi Didier,

his is the default behaviour from Odoo. When you're in the front-end the logged in user will see the times of all screens in the timezone he is in.In the back-end however all dates are converted to UTC-now times, so that the database uses the same timezone for all date and time handling. For example: If you create a record with the date 25/03/2016 and time 11:40 but you live in a timezone UTC+1 it will convert to 25/03/2016 10:30 in the database. (exact format in the db would be 2016-03-25 10:30:00).

You should handle all actions you perform on UTC times, not on the user his timezone.
