How to change Google Calendar Integration that defaults timezone to Greenwich Mean Time?

    I have integrated my form with Google Calendar and for some reason, it keeps defaulting the event to Greenwich Mean Time(GMT) despite both my jotform account AND google account being set to (GMT-8:00) or Pacific Standard Time Los Angeles. Please help me fix this.

    As I have tested the integration, the form selected date and time are being sent to the Google Calendar. Based on the Time zone set in the Google calendar, the event is being created. Since you mention that the Google Calendar is set to use PST, the events should be in the same time zone. 

    If I am missing something, request you to provide us with more information. A screenshot of the event created in Google Calendar and the submission received so that we can check it further to assist you.

    The Google Calendar is already set to PCT. When a jotform is submitted with the integration, the event is being switched to Greenwich Time Zone, while all other events directly inputted show Pacific Standard Time.

    My sincerest apologies, but I am not sure how this can happen what you are reporting. I have also tested a form with Google Calendar integration. The same date and time as selected on a form were forwarded to Google Calendars:

    Could you provide some screenshots so we checked if we are missing something?
