Date formula Dropbox Excel sheet shows different date than Desktop Excel sheet

The date formula in my Excel spreadsheet is showing a day ahead when viewed on Dropbox as compared to when opened from Desktop (shows correct date).  Think they need to sync servers for time zone user is in.

Think you should enable that in your account settings. Look for the Automatic time zone setting.

The problem only seemed to happen on the one day.  Formula is showing correct date now on Excel on Web. 

 

Whatever Dropbox has been doing has been affecting performance for last month.
