Setting up Time Zone and Time Format in Insightful ensures accurate time tracking and data display across your organization's dashboards. This is particularly important for organizations with remote workforce or teams operating in different time zones.

Configure time zones to align timestamps with your local time or that of your employees' time zones. Choose between 12-hour or 24-hour time formats for consistency and readability.

Setting up Time Zone

Insightful software is getting time zone data from the device it is being installed and used on. It will reflect time and date accordingly on your admin/manager dashboards.

If you have employees working in time zones that are different than yours, you can set up Insightful to show data in two different ways:

  • Translate recorded time to your computer time zone and display it like that - Option called Your Time Zone.

  • Keep employee time zones and display the data timestamps originally as they are captured from their devices - Option called Time Zone of Your Employees.

You can access Time Zone settings by clicking on your username on the bottom left and selecting Personal Settings โ†’ Localization tab. After selecting the desired option make sure to click on the Save Changes button.

Employees will naturally still be seeing the data themselves (if permitted to) in their own time zone even if you select the Your Time Zone option - the setting applies to what you're viewing on your end.

Setting up Time Format

You can set up the 12-hour or 24-hour format for displaying time across Insightful software.

Access time format settings by clicking on your username on the bottom left and selecting Personal Settings. Select the Time tab and choose your preferred time format. After selecting the desired option, make sure to click on the Save Changes button.

If a user belongs to multiple companies and sets a specific time format in one organization, that preference will be applied across all organizations the user is associated with.
