There are many cases where we take screenshots of our dashboard at a specific time where we can see evidence of some specific activity that would otherwise be difficult to show later on (because of the compacting of data and the fact that some of the widgets are instant-based - like the Real Time Visitor Count).
Please consider adding a small "Current Local Time" widget in format date('y/m/d h:i:s') modified to the local time of the observed portal.
Not sure in which widget category to place it thouhg. Maybe "Visitors" or "About Matomo"...
Something like this:
I was going to say that it didn't need to be updated every second (every minute is enough), but given it's probably just going to be some light JS, that should be alright. As an alternative, it could only show a max precision of minutes, but I anticipate someone would later ask for more precision...
Thanks @ywarnier that would make a useful widget that people could put in their dashboard etc. 👍
I want to work on this widget but i don't know where to start
Note: I'll edit the issue to title to say "Current local time in website's timezone". I'm thinking this be most useful especially when the site is not in the same timezone as you are (which can be the case fairly often).
If you are for example based in LA, and the site is configured to be in NY, then we'd want to show the current time in NY.
Additionally, if the local time is different from the site's time, then we show both times and we label accordingly which is the local time and which is the time in the site's timezone.
