- By default, the date and time fields in your reports, for example, a user's last recorded login, or last view time, would be shown in Pacific Standard Time. To update these settings to your specific time zone, go to the settings tab and select Time zone. From here, there's a drop-down menu in which you can select your timezone and select Save to confirm. Next time you run reports, the past and future dates will be adjusted to your local time zone.
One of the settings options we also have here are profile attributes, which we've already gone over so next is the Features tab. To help our members decide what to watch next, we offer them the option to specify their interests in their profile settings. So we can offer course suggestions based on their profile. Depending on your organization's policies you may want to turn off this feature. For example, if you want to encourage your users to only focus on courses that align with your business objectives.
So to turn off the recommendations features for your users, simply click Off, down at the bottom, and then click Save to confirm changes.
