Don't know of a really good solution for this, I'm afraid. Filemaker looks strictly at your computer's local time, so additional information needs to be supplied from outside.

If you [a] are sure user computer's time is correct, and know the user's timezone, and [c] know the user's DST rules, you can calculate the UTC from those three.

Another option is to get the UTC from the OS via an OS-level script (requires user computer's time and location to be set up correctly) - or use a web-viewer to get the UTC from an outside service (requires an active Internet connection).

The Get( CurrentHostTimestamp ) function returns the timestamp from the computer hosting the file.
