Zoom API returning incorrect start time for webinars

We are finding the Zoom API is returning the start time back to us an hour early, 18:00 instead of 19:00. The webinar time in the Zoom dashboard is correct at 7pm for that date, but Zoom api keeps returning 6pm, see highlighted below.

Do you have a point of contact at Zoom developers to help troubleshoot and resolve? If you can send them an email and copy us that would be helpful.

Below is an example that can be sent to Zoom. This is what is being returned to us for 30 March.

Add any other context about the problem here.
Our implementation works for days before March 28th . These days match up fine in zoom dashboard .

Can zoom return us the corrected time for the event to match the dashboard ? or should we handle the time zone change ourselves ?

Hi @zoomaa,

What timezone is your Zoom dashboard set to? Our API response will always return the start_time in UTC, and it’s then converted to local time in our Frontend. We recommend you handle this similarly for your own applications as well.

Let me know if this helps to clarify. Thanks!
