Time zone

Our team is scattered across the globe. If one of our team member sitting is US enters a milestone date in pacific time zone (say 28th August), shouldn't it reflect as 29th August for a person sitting in India (IST)? The task completion time must be the same - it cannot be that a person in India starts sees something as overdue, yet the person in US still sees it as task yet to do. Can you please help me clear this ?

Hi there, I can see that you've already asked this with our support team but I'll post an answer here to help any other members with the same question. 
 
Wrike works off of concrete start/end dates, which means that if you are in the US and you set a task deadline for the 30th January, this date shows up in Wrike as the 30th January for your Indian colleagues too - even though the 30th January begins earlier for them. This means, on the 31st of January your Indian colleagues see the task is overdue while you, in the US, see it as not overdue. 
 
It's not a perfect solution but considering the Indian team's day ends before the US team'smaybe the deadline/milestone should be set a day ahead to compensate for the time difference? A note could be added to the task description with any additional details around the due date. 
 
Any questions on this, let me know.
