How do I change the time zone? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason the current date time on Project is 7 hours off. Is there a way I can fix the time zone? My computer is showing the correct time as well.

    The "current date" will display the start time of the working calendar, which is by default 8:00AM. So even if it is May 1st at 7:00PM (real time), the current date will show May 1st at 8:00AM. That current date will update to May 2nd 8:00AM after midnight.

    Is that what you mean?

  • Ivcota,

    You're welcome. What exactly are you trying to do that you need the current time?

    Project is a scheduling application. When you create a plan and enter a series of tasks, the start time of each task is determined by the relationship to other tasks. For the first task in the plan, it will start at 8:00AM since that is the default start time of the Standard working calendar. If you need/want it to start at a different time, you can customize the working time calendar. For example, many users create a custom calendar with the start time at 7:00AM and a finish time of 4:00PM. A custom working time calendar can be created for whatever meets your needs.

    So, if we could better understand what you are trying to do, we could be of more assistance.
