How The Time Zone Affects Date Stamps In Workamajig
All events in Workamajig are tracked as GMT with a +/- 0 offset. So depending on the Time Zone, you set in your Workamajig user profile will affect how your meetings appear. Also depending on your local computer/device's time zone can affect the time/date stamp in custom reporting output.
The best advice is to set your Workamajig profile and your computer/device to the Time Zone you are currently in. So if you travel, then be sure to change your Time Zone to match your current location. Most computers/devices will update the Time Zone, but Workamajig will need to be updated manually as your travel.
