Where is my settings?

Jump to solution

I am supposed to update the time zone for my class.  I cannot find settings in canvas.  Do I set the time zone on my personal computer?  Canvas also explains how to set this and to set a beginning and end to my class.  Where is the settings for Canvas?

Hi  @bax85003  Welcome to the Canvas Community.

All dates and times throughout a course are displayed according to the course time zone. Courses automatically default to the account time zone. However, as an instructor, you may be able to change the time zone for your course.

Note: Users can specify a time zone in their User Settings, which does not have any effect on the course time zone. If users have set a specific time zone in their User Settings, all course dates and times will display in their local time, but if they hover over the date and time, they can also see the course date and time.

I'm hoping this guide is the one for you How do I set a time zone for a course? 

Sing out if you need a hand.
