Apollo Determines the Local Time Zone That the Majority of the State Observes
If a contact is residing in a state that encompasses multiple time zones, Apollo will acknowledge the time zone that the majority of the state observes (for all contacts in that state).
For example, Florida observes two time zones across the state: Eastern Time (ET) for the majority of the state, and Central Time (CT) for certain cities in the state.
Because ET is the time zone that the majority of Florida observes, Apollo will apply ET as the local time zone for all contacts across Florida, regardless of their residing city.
For example, a contact resides in Destin, a city that observes CT, not ET in Florida:
In Apollo, this contact's local time zone is displayed in ET:
Important Note: Currently, we also assume that every state observes daylight savings time in our contact local time calculations, so if a contact resides in a state that DOES NOT observe daylight savings, their local time may be 1 hour off for a portion of the year.
