How do Time Zones Work?

Modified on Fri, 20 Oct 2023 at 12:30 PM

In the Settings page of the platform, you can set the time zone you would like to use. 

This will be the default time zone used for all event and shift creation; however, you can adjust the time zone at the event level when required.

How does this work from the worker's perspective?

The Nowsta app will convert and display time zones to the worker based on their current location. 

For example, if the shift is set to EST, and an employee travels to California, they will see the shift time in PST. Once they return to EST, the shift will adjust accordingly.

Suppose your company has elected to send shift email notifications in addition to in-app notifications. In that case, those will be displayed in the time zone dictated by your company settings or based on the time zone for that event if different.
