Set a default time zone for users

You can help tailor services for new users by setting a default time zone for newly created accounts. When new users first sign in to their accounts, their services will use this time zone. They can then choose another time zone, if they want.

The default time zone applies only for new user accounts. Changing the default doesn't change the time zone for existing users.

To set the default time zone:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console
  2. Click Company Profile > Profile.
  3. (Optional) In the first drop-down menu of the Time zone section, select a default region of time zones for your users to choose from. Alternatively, you can leave this as Show all time zones.

    Your users can always override this and opt to show all time zones, but choosing a default region makes it easier for them to find the time zone they're most likely to use.

  4. Select a default time zone from the Select time zone drop-down menu.
