Trouble with Work Diary time zone not matching my profile settings

So I am sure that my profile settings are correct. I am in NC and I have

"UTC-05:00 Eastern Time (US & Canada)" as my time zone. Have since the begining of time for my profile .

But in my work Diary times zones are way off. The work diary is logging my hours at 4 hours later than my current time zone. So every day begins with time being logged at 12:00AM which is really 8PM the previous day.

How do I get this fixed? I can't figure it out and its driving me crazy. And the client wants to know what is going with my hours.

How do I answer him?

Well all it takes sometimes is for me to ask the question, and the answer will appear. I found the answer. I'm not selecting the correct choice from a "time zone" drop down menu in the work diary. Who would've thunk! It is necessary to change the displaying time zone to my actual time zone.


So you found the "mine" button, huh? 🙂 took me a while, too. Like, I figured it out last week. I've been here for almost a year now.

When you access the work diary through its own tab you can select the correct time zone. 

BUT: the work diary in the contract room is set to UTC (I have already reported this) and there is currently no way to change the setting. Just in case you come across this when adding time manually - it constantly tells me I cannot add future time...
