Your time zone and locale settings determine how time and locale are displayed on your content.
To set your time zone and locale preferences:
- Go to your user Preferences page by clicking on your avatar in the upper right corner and selecting Preferences.
- Select your Locale. This can be important if you use the community from a web browser set to another locale, such as when you're working in an Internet cafe in another country. Your preference here takes precedence. If you want to use the locale set by your administrator for the entire community, make sure that your web browser is not set to a specific locale (or the browser's locale will override the administrator's locale setting).
- Scroll down the page and select your Time Zone. This setting is used in the timestamp when you publish a blog post, document, or discussion. Your administrator sets the time zone that affects the start and end times for all announcements, polls, projects, tasks, and checkpoints.
- Click Save.
