Please return all AlertSite API results in UTC time
Currently any results from the AlertSite API are returned using whatever time zone is configured for the entire account. The problem with that is that the widespread standard used by most tools/apps is to assume that API results are in UTC time. Because of this, we are unable to pull data from the AlertSite API into tools like Grafana or Dynatrace, not without having some kind of custom script in between to modify the time fields to UTC.
Please either change all API results to use UTC time, regardless of the account settings, or at least add a parameter to all API Requests to have the results returned in UTC time. Or, maybe a setting in the Accounts page that toggles all API results to use UTC time?
Also, when I say UTC, I don't mean GMT, as that is a deprecated method of storing and displaying time, since GMT has to be adjusted based on whether or not Daylight Savings time is currently active. UTC does not have this limitation, hence it's widespread use in nearly every modern database and/or API).
