The Company Time Zone Setting will allow you to set the time zone that is used throughout your Skubana account. This update will not affect every instance of a time shown in the Skubana UI. Read on to understand exactly what is affected.
⚠️ NOTE: If you're interested in utilizing this feature for your account, contact your Account Manager or Live Chat.
If this feature is not enabled on your account, you are not utilizing this setting and any timestamp that you see in the UI that does not specify UTC is in Eastern Time.
Once this feature is enabled for your account, the default setting will be in Eastern Time. Your account will continue to show up in Eastern Time until any further changes are successfully updated. Orderbots pertaining to times or dates will begin processing in the Company Time Zone, as opposed to processing in UTC.
Once you change the Company Time Zone to be any other time zone other than Eastern, orderbots pertaining to date/time will now process in the new Company Time Zone.
Anything that is indicated as being in UTC will remain in UTC.
How to Set the Company Time Zone
Request this setting to be turned on for your Skubana account by connecting with your Account Manager, Support Email, or Live Chat.
Ensure that the "Billing & Invoices" or "Account Management" user permission is enabled for your username.
Go to the Settings module, Company Info tab.
Under the Company Info section, go to the Time Zone dropdown menu. Select the appropriate time zone for your company. The time zone selected will adjust to the current local time if the local time changes with Daylight Savings.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Update.
