Setting your time zone in Expensify is super easy and goes on to time-stamp the report actions you take in Report History & Comments. You can either set a static time zone manually, or we can trace your location data to set a time zone automatically for you. So when you comment on, submit, export or modify expenses on a report, the timestamp that is left in the Report History & Comments is consistent with the time zone you’ve set.

To set your time zone, head to Settings > Account > Preferences > Time Zone and check Automatically Set my Time Zone, or uncheck the box and manually choose your time zone from the searchable list of locations: 

Then, when you add a Report Comment, the timestamp reflects the Time Zone you’ve set:

When you use the Generate PDF feature of the report window, the Time Zone that is applied is that of the report submitter:

Other than in the scenario shown above, note that your time zone influences your Report Comments only and, unless you’re a Copilot, you can’t set another user’s time zone for them.
