"Conversion date cannot precede the click date" - Error Appearing For Offline Conversions

Hi all,

 

I've been uploading offline conversions for a few months now, over 9,000 offline conversions with no issues. Since March 26th, 2017, I've been getting this error for almost all of my conversions: "Conversion date cannot precede the click date". 

 

I know that the conversion time/date is after the click time/date, I've confirmed that for all of the clicks I've tried to upload.

 

I've tried changing the time format, changing up the parameters, tried uploading multiple times and can't get it to upload properly. I included the past conversions in the spreadsheet as well and they are still showing as uploading "successfully", so it doesn't seem like formatting is an issue. But I can't figure it out.  

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on where the error is happening?

 

Thank you in advance for the help!

Hi Christian,

 

Could it be a daylight savings issue? Perhaps Google's times changed but yours didn't?
