You, as an Admin have the option to bulk update users' preferred time zone for individuals or groups by setting automated rules to change the preferred time zone.
To do so, select the Academy Admin workspace in the Workspace Launcher. On the left, under Organization, select Set Time Zones.
Step 1: Select Time Zone
Find the time zone that you want to set as a preferred one and click on it! You can use the search field in order to limit your results.
Step 2: Select Users
After the desired time zone is selected, it is time to select the users! You have the option to select either specific employees (Individual selection) or a group of employees based on their job and location (Advanced selection).
You can find individuals easier using the search field and drop-down filter menus. In order to select an individual, simply click the Plus symbol next to his/her name in the left-hand column. The user will then appear in the right-hand Selected column. To remove an individual from the list, click the Minus symbol.
Once you have selected the users that you want, add a message if needed, and click on the blue "Set Timezone" button at the bottom of your page in order to complete the process.
You can also select users based on their job and location. Moreover, you can create an automated rule to be applied automatically in the future.
Under Advanced selection, select the specific job to which this process should be applied. Then, select both the desired Above Units and Units in their respective columns, filtering using the drop-down menus, if needed. The number of individuals affected will appear below.
You have the choice of either to set this time zone as a preferred one this one time, and/or setting up a rule that will automatically assign individuals under these parameters to have this time zone as a preferred one in the future.
Check Automated rule to create a rule for this time zone that will be applied also to future hires.
Check Exclude existing academy members if you ONLY want this to pertain to future members, as opposed to assigning it now.
Last but not least, add a custom message if you want to and select the Set Timezone/ Set Timezone Now and Set Rule button at the bottom of your page to complete the process.
