Updating your time zone

The Stream calendar runs on NZ time.

If you would like Stream to display deadlines and meeting times in your own local time, you must set your time-zone.

First you need to find out your local Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). If you type in UTC and your town, state and country name into an internet search engine like Google, this information is easy to find.

Then set your UTC using the drop down list under Timezone while you are editing your profile. (See Fig 1.)
