How to Set Timestamp Preferences in OneDrive

The default timestamp setting in OneDrive for Business is the eastern time zone. This must be changed in order that all files will reflect the local time for file created/modified parameters. Time zone settings also impact other web apps, so there are 2 places to make this change to reflect local time.

To change the time zone on your O365 account:

  • From the main O365 homepage, click on the Delve tile;
    In Delve, select Me from the navigation pane, then click Update profile.

Note: On your profile page, scroll down to the 3 questions listed; click the more arrow beside “How can I change language…”, then the ‘Click here” link

  • Click the more ellipses (…)
  • Select Language and Region

  • By default, the ‘Always use regional settings defined by the site administrators’ is selected causing all the fields to be disabled.
    • Select the option ‘Always use my personal settings’.
    • The default field entries are now visible and can be changed
  • In the Time Zone section change the option.
  • Click the Save all and close button at the bottom of the page to return to your Delve profile page.
  • Use the QuickApp launcher (grid in the upper-left corner of the screen) to select the OneDrive tile to return to your document library.

To ensure that you have the proper settings for all the Office
web apps, click on the OneDrive tile to open OneDrive and navigate to your site settings:

  1. Settings (cog icon on the header bar) > Site settings >Site Administration >Regional settings.
  2. Choose the appropriate local region as before and save your changes.
  3. Use the QuickApp launcher (grid in the upper-left corner of
    the screen) to select the OneDrive tile to return to your document library.
