A demonstration of updating your User Settings.
Your WorkRoster account has various user settings. Click the "Settings" button from the home page to access them.
You can choose between 12-hour time or 24-hour time.
You can set your timezone.
It's very important that you set the timezone correctly so that shift times and notifications are displayed correctly. Usually, the timezone chosen would be the same as your colleagues and managers. Suppose you are working in a different timezone. In that case, you can select your own timezone - so that the shift times that are displayed will actually match the time where you live.
