Adjusting your Organization Name and Time Zone
In this Help Doc we will discuss how to update the name of your Organization, manage your Organization Time Zone, and turn on and manage your Individual Preferred Time Zone
Managing your Organization Name
You can find your current Organization name in the Upper Left on the web app.
To change the name, you can go to Settings>Details & Time Zone.
When you open those settings you will see the heading Organization Name right at the top. From there you can edit the name as needed, and then press Save.
Important: If you have multiple organizations, you will need to be a Manager or Owner, and be in the organization that you want to edit the name for, in order to edit the name in settings.
Managing your Timezone
To change the Time Zone for your organization, you can go to Settings>Details & Time Zone.
When you open those settings you will see Time Zone. Simply click on the current listed time zone to pull open the dropdown list. Here is where you will choose your Time Zone. Click Save to keep the new Time zone adjustment made.
Important: If you have multiple organizations, you will need to be a Manager or Owner, and be in the organization that you want to edit the Timezone for, in order to edit the Timezone in settings. This new Timezone then applies to everyone in the entire organization unless Preferred Time Zone is on, and is being utilized.
Utilizing Preferred Time Zone
If your Team consists of one or more members who are in different Time Zones, you may want to utilize Preferred Time Zones. Preferred Time Zones allow you to create shifts, Timesheets, Time Off, Availability, etc in your preferred Time Zone, while also allowing Team Members to view them in the Time Zone of their preference.
Turning on Preferred Time Zone
You can turn on Preferred Time Zone in Settings>Details & Time Zone
Managing Preferred Time Zone
Once Preferred Time Zone is on, it can be managed two ways.
1. On the Team Page the Owner or a Manager can assign a Preferred Time Zone to a Team Member in their Team Member Profile.
2. Team Members can set their own Preferred Time Zone in their Edit Profile Settings. These settings can be found on the Web by clicking their initials in the upper right and choosing Edit Profile, or on the Mobile App under Settings>Edit Profile.
Once a Preferred Time Zone is applied all information will be presented within that Time Zone, but notations will be provided throughout to let you know the difference in time between the Organization Time Zone and your Preferred Time Zone.
Important Note: All Totals are done using the Organization Time Zone, and not the preferred. This keeps Payroll consistent.
