This is how to sync the WikiTree time-stamps to your computer or device

+23 votes


On Your Settings Page you will find this option by scrolling half way down:




Click the large green button that says "FILL IN FROM BROWSER".

Verify that the offset looks correct.

Click at the very bottom of the page to "SAVE SETTINGS"


Time-stamps on the WikiTree Activity Feed and in email notifications will match your local time.

Have a nice day!

Brilliant! Thanks Keith
Is this something that we need to do for every device if we use several?
Good question Lynda; no.  Just make sure that one device is set to your correct local time before following the above instructions, then it will work on all of your devices that are set to the same correct time.  It doesn't actually change the clock on your computer or at WikiTree but it tells WikiTree how much to adjust what it shows you based on the time-zone you live in :)
Thanks Keith. Tried it earlier today, but have yet to check whether it has coped correctly with my change of timezone. It was trying to tell me that my local time was Norway, which it has been until now, but I am now in England. I think I may have baffled it :)
