The Transaction Date that appears in The Raiser's Edge plug-in is the UTC time stamp interpreted for the specific time zone for the individual workstation that is accessing the plug-in.

The Download Date/Time is based on the time zone set on the individual pc that opened the plug-in to download the transactions into The Raiser's Edge.

Example:
A Donation Transaction Date/Time is 2012-02-01 T 06:06:26.3863463 in the Blackbaud NetCommunity transactional XML.
The same transaction will have a Transaction Date of:
1/31/2012 10:16:26 PM IF logged into the Blackbaud NetCommunity plug-in on a workstation set to Pacific Time,
and 2/1/2012 1:16:26 AM IF logged into the Blackbaud NetCommunity plug-in on a workstation set to Eastern Time.
