How do I edit the time settings for my HubSpot account?

Last updated: April 12, 2018

As a marketer or sales rep, the time at which a lead is generated or a piece of content is scheduled to be published is valuable information to know. Setting a common time is vital in coordination efforts across teams and locations. However, users also want to see times and dates in a format that is familiar to them while they interact with HubSpot. 

Below, you can find information on:

Setting public-facing date formats (Marketing Hub Basic, Professional, or Enterprise only)

One of the most important time display choices a marketer has is what time format to show viewers that come to their website and read their content. For this use case, you can customize your public-facing time display in content settings. This setting changes how someone viewing your blog sees what time a piece of content was published or what time comments were made. This change can be made on a blog-by-blog basis for all users.

  • In your HubSpot account, click your photo or avatar in the top right-hand corner, then click Settings.

  • In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Marketing Blog.
  • Under Select a blog to modify, click the dropdown menu and select the blog you'd like to modify the date format for.

Setting your account time zone

In HubSpot, you can set the preferred time zone for your account. If you are a Marketing Hub Basic, Professional, or Enterprise user, this sets the time zone for scheduled events like blog post publishing, social media posts, and email sends. All web analytics data will be displayed relative to your chosen time zone. Learn how to set this time zone in marketing and sales accounts below.

  • In your HubSpot account, click your photo or avatar in the top right-hand corner, then click Settings.
Click the Time zone dropdown menu and select your time zone. The options are broken down by regions (U.S., Europe, etc).

  • Click Save at the bottom left to take your changes live.

Setting your date and number format

HubSpot also offers a way for individual users to change the way dates and numbers are formatted in the product user interface itself (for example, the formatting of date property values for your contact, company, and deal records). This is set on a per user basis.

  • In your HubSpot account, click your photo or avatar in the top right-hand corner, then click Profile & Preferences.

  • Select your locale in the Date & number format dropdown. Your changes will be automatically saved.
