A new analysis is created in Answers with various presentation columns selected, and filters are created on the columns.

If a filter is created on a Presentation Column which is mapped to a Physical Column of type DATETIME, then that filter does not display / render in the Criteria tab of the analysis. For example, the following may be observed in the Filters pane:

   Person ID is equal to / is in 12345
  AND Contract Type is equal to / is in CT-123

When the issue is encountered, see the following error is observed in the web browser's Developer Tools > Console page:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'getUTCOffsetByMinutes')
