Date and Time

The Date and Time app allows you to:

  • Select your time zone
  • Synchronize your clock with network time servers

VoIP, authentication services and other applications require proper time settings, so please make sure your clock and time zone are correct.


If your system does not have this app available, you can install it via the Marketplace.

You can find this feature in the menu system at the following location:

<navigation>System|Settings|Date and Time</navigation>


Date and Time

The system date, time and time zone information is displayed for informational purposes. Please make sure it is accurate since it is not unusual to have computer clocks improperly set on a new installation.

Time Zone

It is important to have the correct time zone configured on your system. Some software (notably, mail server software) depends on this information for proper time handling.

Automatic Synchronize

When enabled, it will synchronise the time nightly at 02:02.

Time Synchronization

Hitting the Synchronize Now button will synchronize the system's clock with network time servers.

Special thanks to ClearCenter for providing the time servers for all ClearOS systems!
