Personalized timezones

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
In multinational/multiregional instances, such as Metadecidim, it is sometimes confusing that the system shows the times on the platform in a different timezone than what the user is on. It would be great if we could display the date/time in the user's local time.

Describe the solution you'd like
Everywhere where we show any dates or times, we would display them in the user's own timezone. This information is available through the browser APIs and would not require any additional configuration fields to be added for the user.

Describe alternatives you've considered
Using browser extensions but this is also not possible right now because the dates and times do not contain the timezone information with them.

Additional context
The date and time display and conversion should happen at the user's browser. This would allow the content served by the server to be cached either fully or partially.

If we add the timezone information to the dates and times displayed by the platform, the front-end code could calculate the correct date and time to display for the user and this would not cause any problems with the caching strategies.

This information is possible to provide to the browser using the <time> tag

Does this issue could impact on users private data?
No, as the calculation happens in the user's browser.
