During the data upgrade, all system date and time fields are updated to use the datetimedata type, and are converted into Coordinated Universal Time values (UTC). All tables are scanned for system date and time fields, including those added by a partner. For more information about the datetimedata type and time zones, see About date/time data and time zones.

You can also upgrade dates and times that are not system fields. For more information, see Upgrade date and time values that are not system fields.
