Dates and Times

Qualtrics APIs use the ISO 8601 standard for specifying dates and times.

The Qualtrics APIs use date and time values which follow the [ISO 8601](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601) standard. Each value represents a specific point in time. In general, although the ISO 8601 standard specifies many different date and time formats, the typical date and time value specifies the date as YYYY-MM-DD (where *YYYY* indicates a four-digit year, *MM* is a two-digit month, and *DD* is the two-digit day of the month) followed by the character "T" and then the time as hh:mm:ss (where *hh* is a two-digit hour in military time format (00-23, no AM or PM), *mm* is the two-digit minutes past the hour, and *ss* is the two-digit seconds) followed by the character "Z" which indicates UTC. Instead of "Z," a time zone offset from UTC can be indicated as plus ("+") or minus ("-") followed by hh:mm. The following shows examples of ISO 8601 dates and times: - 2016-04-01T07:31:43Z represents April 1, 2016 at 7:31:43 AM in UTC. - 2017-02-07T14:02:11-08:00 represents February 7, 2017 at 2:02:11 PM in the PST time zone (UTC minus 8 hours). All date and time values returned by the APIs are expressed in UTC unless the API allows you to return values in local time. For example, [Create Response Export](doc:create-response-export) has the `useLocalTime` parameter that, if set to `true`, causes the times in the responses to be expressed in the time zone set in the admin user interface.
