The following will provide interpretations for the various fields RaiseNow provides with a transaction or subscription.
The RaiseNow Manager interface will always provide the time of the donation corresponding to the settings of the browser currently using the RaiseNow Manager. For example, if a donor submits a donation at 5pm Zurich local time on the 24th of September, an organisations donor manager in San Francisco using the RaiseNow Manager will see this donation at 8am of the 24th of September.
When querying a given transaction via API, the RaiseNow API will provide two fields in the response:
"created": "2018-09-24 16:03:20",
The "created" field in this case is RaiseNow server time, which is CET/CEST.
The timestamp field provides the date/time as a unix timestamp. Unix timestamps are the number of seconds since 1st of January 1970 UTC.
