Fix timezone selector in Inform reporting scheduler (or remove it)

Currently the Inform function includes a report scheduler, which allows you to choose which timezone (and time) to have the report run in. However this timezone selector does not actually work - the selection is ignored and sends the report in the timezone of the admin's computer or Absorb settings. I have validated this with Absorb Support via a ticket and confirmed it's not a bug, and that the feature was not built to function as it appears. It was recommended to me that file an Idea here to have it removed to avoid confusion (or ideally have it fixed)

    Hi Kate,

    Thank you for submitting this, we are actually looking to sunset Inform over the next 1-2 years and migrate clients to Analyze our new BI offering. As such, we would be unlikely to request enhancements to Inform from the BI vendor that provides the service.

    If you are interested in an Analyze Demo or review, please reach out to your Account Manager and then they would be more than happy to set something up.
