Time zone support
Dashboard Analytics Time Zone¶
The dashboard's time zone ensures that data in the Branch dashboard is always presented consistently, no matter where in the world you may be when viewing your data. International teams can settle upon a fixed time zone and see Branch data in that time zone.
The time zone setting also allows you to import data from third parties, like Facebook and Google, and ensure that Branch data matches up with external sources.
Setting or changing time zone¶
The time zone can be set in Account Settings.
- Select your time zone from the dropdown
- Scroll down until you see the Save Settings button. Click Save Settings to save your time zone.
Changing time zone
Branch allows you to change your time zone. Changing your time zone will take effect after a page refresh, and will set your dashboard to use your new time zone. However we do not recommend changing time zone unless you have to, as it can cause discrepancies between previously exported data and the data in your dashboard. In the future, changing time zone may not be possible as we may store data in your specified time zone.
How does daylight savings impact my time zone?¶
Your Branch data won't adjust with daylight savings. Daylight savings is actually independent of time zone. When your city follows a daylight savings change, they also change time zone. You can update your time zone if you'd like, or leave it to be a consistent time zone all year round.
