SPO Admin change the default Time Zone

This blog post was prompted by recent activities in my O365 developer tenant. I noticed that I had not set the default time zone during site creation (see image below).

It’s easy to change the time zone through Site Settings > Regional Settings but, it’s even easier if you set it once for all new sites through the new SharePoint Admin center. Note: existing sites must be changed manually.

Listed below are the steps to set the default time zone during site creation:

  • Go to the O365 Admin center
  • “Show all” admin centers
  • Click “SharePoint”
  • Click “Settings”
  • Click “Site creation”
  • Set “Default time zone” as required and click “Save”. Note: if you don’t see this option, it simply has not hit your tenant yet.

Thanks for stopping by.
