Time zone Mismatch Error in Windows

Time zone Mismatch Error in Windows

Workstatus is built to work with your user’s real time zone.

When a user’s operating system Timezone is not correct, Workstatus will display an error telling them that the timezone on their operating system is not matching with Workstatus account.

The way you can verify your time zone is correct is by going to one of the global clock sites and checking that the time the website says that your time zone should be is the time you have your computer’s clock set to and that your timezone is matching the time zone you chose to look at.

Workstatus can calculate this time mismatch because the server knows the correct UTC time and it knows the end user’s time offset (timezone) so it knows if the clock off by more than +/- 2 mins. If the clock off by more than 2 minutes, Workstatus will not allow the user to record activity. Once the user’s computer is set to the correct time, Workstatus will track without problems.


We recommend that you always let the computer adjust your time to sync with the internet. You can do this on windows by setting your “internet time” settings to synchronize the time automatically.

On Windows 10, click the clock on the desktop > click additional date, time, and regional settings> set the time and date> Internet time> Change setting> synchronize with internet time> server > update now> Ok

On change of Time Zone, App will show an error message as below
