Workvisit schedule timestamps

I'm trying to use the Workvisit_v1 API endpoint. When I submit the request it goes through fine but the timestamps for startDateTime and endDateTime appear to be modified when they are displayed in the Equinix portal. What format should these timestamps be submitted in? GMT?

Hello Dustin Haggard,
Thank you for reaching out to us.
WorkVisit API is expecting Start Date & End Dates are ISO date format UTC timezone. For example: 2017-04-05T10:00:00Z.
WorkVisit API will auto convert the Start Date & End Dates to the IBX local timezone before submitting the request to the Equinix IBX Operations team. You will see the same IBX local timezone which is sent to the Equinix IBX Operations team in the Equinix Customer Portal.
