Re: Is there a way to set time zone for the Quick books online?

Hi lakmsn,

 

We don't have a setting in QuickBooks Online where you can set the time zone. However, you can change the computer's date and time settings. QBO's time will depend on the what you've set up on your computer.

 

Here's how to change your computer settings:

  1. In the Windows menu, select Control Panel
  2. In the Windows Notification Area, select Date and Time Settings.
  3. Adjust time and save. 

Don't hesitate to come back with more questions.

I have this same issue and my time and time zone are correct on my pc.  Running any reports are showing in GMT time zone and I am in central.  Today is June 12th but when running reports and Today is selected it pulls in June 11th which was yesterday.

 

Is there a way to correct this in QBOA?

I can clarify this for you, CMC Tax Guy.

 

QuickBooks Online servers record the dates and time in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). When running reports, QBO interprets the time based on the time zone of our server which happens to be GMT.

 

That answers your concern about the time zone on the report. If you have other concerns, just let me know.

Thanks for the reply and clarity. 

 

Unfortunately not the answer I was hoping to hear but will have to work with it.  Thankfully using "custom" dates works.  Hopefully this is something Quickbooks can improve on so accountants like me or in CST can run reports to capture same day transactions or activities by just selecting the "Today" period.  

 

Again, Thanks!
