Tookan doesn’t allow you to set your own Timezone. It depends on the location of task creation.

For setting timezone in Tookan when you are creating tasks via API, send the value of time zone by checking the time zone of your region. To do so click on the below mentioned link 

When you are creating the tasks through dashboard, the basic login / logout sets the time zone of the system and the value of task creation time automatically aligns with it.

 Q: How Does Tookan Cater To Different Timezones?

A: In Dashboard
When you create a task from Tookan Dashboard the local time zone from where you create the task is considered.
for example : Let’s say a task is created in Singapore, the time zone considered is GMT +8hrs.

In Bulk Upload
In the case of bulk upload of tasks, the time zone of the admin account is taken into consideration while tasks are created.
For example : Let’s say an admin in the US(say A for convenience) has created a manager(say M) in India. Therefore When this manager(M) creates tasks using the bulk upload the timezone of Admin(A) and tasks are created in US TimeZone.

Using Tookan API
Tookan API accepts a request body parameter named “timezone” which is the Timezone difference with UTC in minutes. Therefore When you create a task is with local time(say X), and timezone(+Y). Y minutes are added to X to make it UTC time.

How to get the Timezone difference with UTC in minutes? Let’s say for example I am creating a task in India’s time which is five and half hours ahead of UTC time (+05:30), convert five and half hours into minutes i.e 330 minutes. Since India’s time is ahead of UTC time to convert it into UTC time 330 minutes has to be subtracted from it. Therefore , timezone is -330.
