I am new to Joomla. I have a question. I'll clarify my question:

In the calendar that was we make from the calendar field. This link is calendar field doc. when a user comes to the site this calendar uses his time no server time. for example, now we are on 31, March. if the user changes his time to 11, March; when this user clicks on Today the field had sets Today as 11 March, not 31 March. I want this calendar to use our server time and the time zone we set in config. say to me if it is not possible.
