The Basics

Switching Time Zones

Due dates are automatically set for the Central time zone. If you live or will be working in a different time zone, you can alter your settings so that due dates reflect your current time zone. Note that the due dates in your activity checklist will not change; those dates will always reflect the Central time zone.
