Enable local timestamp on Office 365 SharePoint site

Image
Recently I received some complains from our US users about the timestamp of our SharePoint site hosted in Office 365. The timestamp of the documents and folders on the site are all showing Australia Eastern time for them. It takes me sometime to find out how to allow each individual user to see their local timestamp. This  requires some setting changes from the user end. Here is what needs to be done. 1.          Log into Office 365 SharePoint site and click your name in the top right corner, then the drop down list will appear with  About me  option. 2.          Click  About me , then click  edit  in the next page. 3.          In the next page, click  …  icon next to  Details.  Then select  Language and Region 4.          In the nex t page, under  Choose your settings , select  Always use my personal settings . This will override the SharePoint site settings. Make sure  Time Zone  is set to correct local time zone. 5.          VE
