So I am finding that there are different timezones in the salesforce marketing cloud across email studio, journey builder, contact builder, analytics, etc.

I have identified the following:

  • System Timezone (Account Settings)
  • Personal Timezone (User Profile)

Now i am wondering if there is a server timezone as well and what other timezones settings there are in SFMC?

I want everything to be GMT; from logs, to scheduler, to AMP Script, everything. Thanks.


I admit, that timezones in SFMC can be confusing. Especially since there is a number of different timezones applied - depending on the area of SFMC you are working with. Here is a good unofficial (compiled in best effort) overview of where which time zone applies: enter image description here It is not possible to adjust the server time, which will always be UTC-6, so you will need to adjust accordingly in e.g. SQL or AmpScript

  • This is amazing thanks, where it says system date; does that refer to server time? – Jordan Oct 10 '20 at 17:42
  • Yes, @Jordan - system date is server time – Lukas Lunow Oct 11 '20 at 7:09
  • @LukasLunow What's your understanding of the System Display+Journey Builder and Data Filters/Queries+Mobile Studio entries? – Adam Spriggs Dec 8 '20 at 13:42
