Drupal Converting Time

Hi,

I am going to be using a Feed Importer to import  a JSON feed.

The time field I have access to in my feed is formatted like this: 20151119T120000

I will map this to a date field (popup) and want it to display like such: 11-19-2015 12:00:00 PM - Time Zone does not need conversion.

Currently, the time imports as 7:00
LVL 3

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Drupal's Date module stores time in UTC. If you are importing a time that's specific to a timezone, you'll need to convert it to UTC before it's stored. The Feeds Tamper module might help with this.
