I have my poll set to end at 11 AM, but it displays as ending at 3 PM. I can't find a way to fix that.
can you send me the link to your PollUnit to firstname.lastname@example.org?
What is the time zone in the system? can I set to a particular time zone?
We determine the user's local timezone and then adjust our system time to match the user's timezone. If you wish to create a PollUnit for a different timezone than your own, you will need to either add or subtract the time offset to align with the target timezone.
So how to check my time zone of my account?
Your timezone will be the time zone of your browser or when not set of your operating system. But we just added a info in the »My account« section so it is more easy to find this information.
Thank you so much! I can see it now.
I have a little suggestion is that it would be better for user to manually select the time zone of each poll because the audience may be different. Thank you so much for your consideration.
What type of PollUnit are you currently utilizing?
Presently, only our voting polls featuring time-sensitive options, such as time ranges and date-time selections, enable users to specify a time zone. When a time zone is configured, all users will view the times in the specified time zone. I'm uncertain if this enhances clarity for users in different time zones.
I mean admin. Sorry.
What I mean is that when admin creates a photo contest with submission period (the start date/time and the end date/time), can admin set the time zone? Thanks.
Just to clarify, you don't want to change the time zone for everyone; you want to adjust the time zone for your current session. This way, you can input a date and time in a specific time zone, but when another user views your PollUnit, they will see the time displayed in their local time zone.
In this scenario, I believe we should provide users with the option to change their time zone. Otherwise, we'll end up with a blend of various time zones when making this adjustment selectively to certain fields.
Yes, that's what I mean. Admin should have the right to select the time zone when setting up time-related parameters. When user sees the page, it makes sense that the time displayed is in their local time zone.
OK, I put this on our feature request list. I let you know when we have any updates.
Thank you so much!
Feature Update: You can now customize your time zone. Simply log in and navigate to the "My Account" section. Here, you can choose your preferred time zone. If you don't make a selection, we will automatically detect your local time zone.
Choosing a time zone will not affect the time zone settings for other users viewing your polls. However, when you create a date time or time range poll, you have the option to set and enforce a specific time zone for your poll. In such cases, visitors will receive a warning if the selected time zone differs from their own.
Excellent feature update. Thank you PollUnit Team!
