By default, your Booking tool will be set to match the local time during tool set up, but if you have a location that is outside of it, you may wish to change the settings to match the specific location. Setting a time zone in your booking tool that reflects your business’s local time is valuable for your clients to select an accurate appointment or service with you. For example, when you book a hotel, flight, or restaurant table somewhere outside of your local area, it would be easiest to see when their schedule and appointments are since that is where you will be when you are fulfilling your request!
  1. To set your time zone, begin within your Bookings tool.
