need a way to display data in our local timezone accounting for daylight

However, dataflows will only store the last connection
to a dataflow, which makes connecting to dataflows in multiple tenants an
arduous process of changing the data connect options.
Also confusing is the fact that the account switcher
control is unrelated to the dataflow credentials, leading to situations where

work with the Service & PBIRS it is important to know which version of
Power BI Desktop you are working in.
