At the account level, you can change the default date and time format, as well as the time zone and default language. You can even change the term the system uses to refer to your users into something more appropriate like “students”.
If you would like to change any of the regional settings, you can do so via Layout Settings. Here you can select the time and date format to be used by your schedules. Furthermore, you can specify which day should be set as the first day of the week. For example, if you select “Saturday”, the left-most column in the Week view will be Saturday instead of the regional default.
Under Regional options you can also change the default language and country, if necessary. The time zone is set in accordance with the country setting. If, however, your audience is spread across different time zones, you can configure the SuperSaaS system to show times in users’ own time zone as well. While the calendar will always be displayed in the account’s base time zone, the appointment times will be displayed in two zones.
Configuring time zone support
To configure time zone support, you need to ensure your account’s base time zone is set correctly. The administrator, and users who are not logged in, will see times in this zone. If you check the option Your Settings link in the top right corner of the page. You can also configure individual users’ time zone setting via User Management., each user will see an additional time zone setting upon signing up. Existing users can change their time zone with the
Using a schedule in a different time zone
Let’s assume your account is configured in US Eastern Time. When a user from Japan, who has his time zone set to Japanese Standard Time, visits your schedule, he would see both times displayed in the popup when he clicks your schedule. If the time spans across a date, then the date will be added to the time as well. Furthermore, if an appointment spans multiple time zones this will be handled correctly too, with the time zone names noted next to each time. This can happen, for example, if a multi-day appointment starts when Daylight Saving Time (DST) is in effect and ends a few days later when it’s not. When calculating the time zone difference, the system will automatically take into account differences caused by DST periods in your location and that of the user. The dual time will also display in any email notifications and reminders.
Under Layout Settings, you can define an alternative term to refer to users. For instance, if you select , every dialog box, help page, email and system message will refer to your users as “students”. Note that this is an account-wide setting, which will apply to all the schedules within your account.
When choosing the custom option (other: ), enter a term in singular form. The SuperSaaS system will automatically convert it to plural where appropriate. While it knows most English plurals, it is not perfect and will probably fail for foreign words. In that case you can overwrite the default pluralization by entering both the singular and plural term, separated by a comma. For languages that need to modify sentences based on gender you can indicate the gender of the term by prefixing it with ª (feminine ordinal indicator), º (masculine ordinal indicator) or · (neuter ordinal indicator).
