Thousands Separator

Time Zone

Server Time Zone

Defines the time zone used in the Web Server.

If your project requires multiple users to be in different time zones, this parameter is a must. This is the time zone that Bizagi will use to store all dates in the database. If this option is not defined, dates shown in the work portal might be inconsistent.

Keep in mind that all users have their timezone as a user preference.

If a user does not have a timezone defined, Bizagi will assume he/she is using the project's timezone. So ell dates will be displayed to this user, using the project's timezone.

If a user HAS a timezone defined, and it is different form the project's one, then Bizagi will DISPLAY ALL dates for this user matching his/her timezone. But all dates will be stored in the project's time zone.

If a user travels, changing timezone, Bizagi will still consider the timezone defined in his/her preferences. It will only change if the Preferences are updated. However the update will affect every single date the users sees.

 

 

Notifications

You can customize the body of automatic notifications messages in order to include the desired information.

Automatic notifications are e-mail messages sent to end users to inform about aborted cases, delayed activities and assigned tasks.
