Time zones and formats
When you are configuring your account, one of the first things that should be done is to set your primary time zone. This is the time zone that you are located in and will do most of your events in. You then always have the option of overriding the time zone for a specific event if needed.
Setting time zones
Global account time zone
To set or change the time zone for the entire account, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings from the primary navigation menu, and then Account Profile from the left side menu.
- Use the Default Time Zone dropdown menu to select your time zone. It may be reflected by your exact location or a location closest to your time zone. For example, someone in Tampa, Florida or Savannah, Georgia may choose “America/New York - EST/EDT” or another eastern time zone location.
This is now the time zone that will be associated with all of the events that you create in this account, unless you override this time zone for any events as outlined below.
Specific event time zone
To set or change the time zone for a specific event, follow this step:
- When creating or editing an event, go to Step 1 — Main Details and change the time zone.
This allows you to create events in different time zones.
Note: All dates and times that are rendered within the application and visible on all public pages, emails, and within exports are transformed to the time zone that is configured on the account or the event itself.
