When a new user first signs in to their Google Workspace account, the time zone is based on their location. You can set a different default time zone for new users in the Admin console.
About time zone settings
Setting a default time zone applies only to new user accounts. Existing users keep their current time zone.
If you set a time zone, you can't switch back to using time zones based on the user's location. You can only continue to change the default time zone.
Users can change time zones for some services. You may want to share the following information with your users:
In Google Sheets, users can choose a time zone for a specific spreadsheet. For instructions, go to Set a spreadsheet’s location & calculation settings.
In Google Calendar, users can change their time zone and create events with certain time zone. For instructions, go to Use Google Calendar in different time zones.
Google Drive and Docs editors use the time zone set for the user's web browser or computer.

In the Admin console, go to Menu AccountAccount settingsProfile.
- Click Timezone.
- Next to Select country, click the Down arrowselect a default country/region.
- Next to Select timezone, click the Down arrowselect a default time zone.
- Click Save.
