Changing your Time Zone and Locale Preferences


Your time zone and locale settings determine how time and locale are displayed on your content.


To set your time zone and locale preferences:

  1. Go to your General Preferences page by clicking next to your name in the upper right corner and selecting Preferences.
  2. 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.
  3. Select your locale. This can be important if you use Jive from a web browser set to another locale, such as 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).
  4. Click Save.
