IMPORTANT:

For Releases to work correctly, you need to set the timezone in your account correctly as the date/time is being saved in UTC on our system. The time shown in the UI is calculated based on the timezone set in the user’s account and the saved time in UTC.

Now under the release you just created, let’s create a new story. Click on “Create new” {1} at the top right.
