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 user Preferences page by clicking on your avatar in the upper right corner and selecting Preferences.
  2. Select your Language and Locale. This can be important if you use Jive 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 unless the browser locale is not supported by Jive).
    Note: Decimal and thousand separators for files sizes are displayed according to the locale. When user has a locale set in their Preferences page, we use the user locale. If your locale is set to default, Jive uses browser locale.
  3. 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.
  4. Click Save.
