dateAndTime fields provide subfields for entering date and time values in a user-friendly way. Dates and times are stored in ISO 8601 format, for example: 2022-01-01T03:00:00Z.

Note that while dates and times are edited in the individual editor's time zone, they are always saved in UTC (Universal Coordinated Time).
