Time Zone & Date Settings

Time and Date Settings are very important and should not be skipped during your Getting Started set up.

  1. Point to Tools and click Edit Settings.
  2. On the main page (Organization Defaults) scroll down to the Time Date Settings section.
  3. Jackrabbit uses the US standard date format of mm/dd/yyyy throughout the database and it is not possible at this time to use another format inside the database. You can, however, choose dd/mm/yyyy for external (customer) views such as on the Web Registration form: student birthdate or on customer statements.
  4. Verify your Time Zone to ensure that all financial transactions and enrollment records use your area's correct date and time.
    Note: Jackrabbit defaults to Eastern Time - US/Canada if this setting is not changed.
  5. If you observe daylight savings time, verify the dates and update them if needed.
  6. Click Save Changes on the upper left of the page.
