Which time zone does Zendesk Explore use?

Return to top


  • François Spinnael

    The default dashboard which one is it using ?

    Because I have different values between the default dashboard & new dashboard... (everything was verified, filters) and the only difference value I see is the switch between UTC  to Brussels zone.

    I suppose it doest the same for time filtering? But in time filtering I can't adapt the SQL.

    Meaning I have a difference between the default dashboard & created dashboard, for the same filters...

    Why is it that my report for call logs is still showing stats based on Philippine Time when I already updated my device and the Time Zone under Accounts>Localization to EST?

    Hi AJ,
    Explore uses the timezone selected in the user's profile. You can check your profile page in Support and make sure that the Timezone is also set to EST.

    Gab Guinto  is there any way to change the applied timezone.  With globally distributed teams we need to have a different timezone for profiles and reporting (explore).

    Hey Ryo,
    The only way to change the timezone for specific users is through their profile page as mentioned in this article: Which time zone does Zendesk use?
    Explore will use whichever timezone is set in those user profiles you edit.
    Let me know if I'm misunderstanding your question!

    thanks Brett Bowser.  That's the problem though. Your profile setting isnt necessarily the timezone that you want your report to use.  I work in Japan so i need the profile setting to be in Japan for zendesk to work in my timzone.  But I want the reports to use Pacific time so we are aligned as a company.
