PheedLoop automatically detects your time zone when you login to the virtual platform, and this time zone detection is based on what you have selected in your operating system’s date/time settings.
As a result, all dates and times in the virtual event portal are automatically adjusted to display in your local time zone. Your local time zone is also listed next to each session’s date and time when the session is active on your page.
Your time zone is also listed in the “Account” section of the virtual event portal, and can be adjusted there.
