How can I change the time zone for my Access Web App? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have an Access Web App that I have been working on, and recently noticed that the time zone is incorrect. I've checked the Site Collection and Subsite time zones, and they are set correctly to CT, however the time keeps appearing in PT:

    Web App Time

    Site Collection/subsite Time




    System Time

    What can I do to change the time zone for this web app so the correct time zone shows?

    Yes, I agree with you and I think it is the solution in the cases above. Do you try to republish? 

    According to my test result, the settings work after re-deploying the app.

    To re-deploy, please open the web app in Access Client and SaveAsNewApp and upload the new one into sharepoint site.

  • Celeste,

    Thank you so much for sharing the hyperlink to Matt's case. That is actually one that I red before posting this, however there seems to be a lot of ambiguity in the solution.

    Under root cause, you state that the regional setting had the incorrect time zone. In my screenshot above I show that the correct time zone was selected.

    Is it possible, though, that the app would have to be removed and reinstalled if the timezone was changed? Is that possibly the issue that I am facing, that the timezone was initially incorrect and the timezone at the time of installation of the app is now permanent to the app?

    Happy to discuss offline as well.

    Thank you!

  • Celeste,

    Thank you for this. I re-deployed the app on another sub-site and it worked fine.
