Set a system time zone

How to set a default time zone for calendars and users.

  1. Navigate to System Properties > System.
  2. Locate the property called System timezone, used as default for calendars and users.

    By default, the input field is blank. If no time zone is defined for this property, America/Los Angeles is used as the default.

  3. Type a time zone in the field and click Save. This becomes the system time zone.

    The new time zone automatically cascades to all users who do not already have a specified time zone. If a user selects a different time zone or if the administrator selects a different time zone for them, the user is assigned the selected time zone and does not use the system time zone anymore.
