Location Preferences

The Location section of the Set Preferences dialog contains settings related to location, such as the time zone used when displaying dates and times as well as the format for displaying dates and numbers based on region.

Time Zone
The time zone that is used when showing the date and time on reports.

The options are presented as offsets to the Greenwich Mean Time.

For example, New York is in the Eastern Time Zone of the United States, and Eastern Standard Time (EST) is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time. Therefore, the appropriate selection for New York would be GMT-5.

Region Format
This determines the order in which dates are presented (or downloaded as formatted values), when using the date, date4y, and datehms24 display formats as well as how numbers (i.e., integers and decimals) are displayed.
