Setting the global time zone

When the global corporate time zone is specified,

  • By default, visualizations use the specified corporate time zone

  • Days break at midnight based on your corporate time zone

Note: If all of your data in Domo is in corporate time, you do not need to set the time zone.

Status

Description

Not enabled

When the global corporate time zone setting is not enabled, there is no way to convert DATETIME info for your corporate time zone. Example of DATETIME data: '2014-08-14 15:05:30'. All DATETIME fields in your data are visualized based on the assumption that your "current time" is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). For example, if you were in New York City and your data is time-stamped in UTC, the date changes at 7:00PM since UTC is 5 hours ahead of Eastern time zone. The new time zone setting compensates for this situation. (If your data were already time-stamped in Eastern Time, you would not need to set the new time zone feature.)

Enabled

When the global corporate time zone setting is enabled, all DATETIME data sent into Domo must be in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). The DATETIME data converts from UTC to the time zone setting when you view your charts. Your data remains unchanged. This time zone setting applies to all of your DataSets within Domo. The global corporate time zone does not affect any DATE fields within your data; the time zone setting affects only DATETIME fields.

  1. Click  > Admin Settings.

  2. Click .
    The Settings page appears.
