Supported timestamp formats
Example Description
2016-12-07T17:30:15.842428Z Human readable timestamp in ISO 8601 format, UTC
2016-12-07T18:30:15+0100 Human readable timestamp, also ISO 8601, with UTC offset
2016-12-07T18:30:15 CET ISO 8601 with custom timezone offset: Central European Time (CET).
2016-12-07T18:30:15 ISO 8601 without timezone. Assume Europe/Berlin (CET) if no timezone is given. It will also account for daylight saving time (DST), so there’s no specific need to use CEST vs. CET during summer.
