The time zone set for a workplace determines what time zone schedules and time sheets are created in. If you have employees in different time zones, you can set their custom time zone so they can view their shift times based on their local time zones.

Things to know before you begin

  • You must be a manager or account holder to view and modify app settings.
  • You must be a supervisor, manager, or account holder to change an employee’s custom time zone setting.
  • Each workplace can only be set in one time zone. Changing your workplace’s time zone setting will adjust shift times on the schedule. If you use When I Work Time Clock & Attendance, time punches are also adjusted.

  2. From the Time Zone menu, select the time zone you’d like to set for your workplace.Time Zone menu
  3. When you’re done, click Save in the top-right.

Your schedule’s shift times are adjusted based on the time zone difference. If you use Time Clock & Attendance, time punches are also adjusted.
