Set my Timezone and Language

How do I set my Timezone and Language?

Purpose: To teach you how to set your timezone and language in your account.

To set your timezone or language, click on the photo avatar in the top right corner and follow the steps as shown below. By default, your timezone will automatically be set to the timezone set for the account until your Location has been added in the Job Information table on your employee profile. Please note that you will only have the option to update your timezone if you are working in a remote location as set by your administrator. 

Simply click "Account Settings", set the timezone and language, and click "Save Settings."

Timezone and BambooHR Time Tracking

If you are using BambooHR Time Tracking, setting the timezone is important so we know when an employee's pay period starts and ends. By default, an employee's timezone is the company's timezone. However, once an employee is assigned to a Location then they will be recognized as being in that location's timezone. If an employee doesn't have a location or is part of a remote location, the employee will need to edit their timezone as seen above.
