Change Default Timezone in Zoom


University of Michigan Zoom users


When I try to schedule a meeting in Zoom, the time zone is Pacific Time by default, not Eastern. 


Note: This seems to only happen if you are scheduling the meeting from and not from the GSuite App and creating a meeting through the calendar.

Single meeting change:

  • Go to and sign in
  • Click on Meetings
  • Find your meeting and click on the Name (Topic) of the meeting to open the meeting details
  • Click Edit at the bottom of the page
  • You can now update the Time Zone and Time info for the meeting
  • Click 'Save' when done with edits

Update your Profile Settings for future meetings:

  • Go to
  • Log in
  • Click the Profile button on the left of the screen
  • Scroll down to the time zone info
  • Click on the Edit button next to that section
  • Update your time zone
  • Click Save Changes
