How to Adjust the Server TimeZone in App Platform


I have just started using the Digital Ocean App platform to quickly deploy and test our Microservices. One thing that was quickly discovered by our test users was the 2-hour difference in terms of time indicated on some of the messages sent to the customer. We are using CAT / GMT(+2) but the server time is 2 hours behind. So the question is, how do we change the DO App Platform Servers to Our TimeZone to get the correct time?
