ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Web Reports Today Function is not pulling the correct data. There seems to be a Timezone Issue

Text below:

Customer is pulling an adjustment report daily that shows all of the adjustments that have occurred that day with the filter condition InventoryHistory.Create Timestamp >= 'Today' . The issue is that we are getting data from Previous Day where we are expecting to only pick up data for Today
 
Tomorrow function also does not help in this case. Some data for today is missing.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Customer is in NewZeland time zone and wants to pull One Day's worth of data

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a WebReport
2. Set it up with any date time filter. Example - InventoryHistory.Create Timestamp >= 'Today'
3. Run the report and verify the data, depending on Customer's Time Zone, there could either be some additional data from previous day or some data missing on the current day
