Cron Timezone: Set timezone for your cronjobs

Hello all,

I'm happy to announce that since May 2012, SetCronJob fully supports custom cron timezone for each cronjob :-)
This feature is greatly helpful when you want your cronjobs to execute under your timezone or any desired one.

Custom time zone for your cronjobs

How to choose custom time zone for your cronjobs:
Select custom time zone for your cronjob
  • Create new cronjob or edit your cronjob
  • At Cron Timezone, click on the box to drop down the timezone list
  • Select your desired timezone
  • Then Save CronJob.
That's it!

From now on, your cronjob will be executed under American/Los_Angel timezone (Pacific Time Zone, PDT - with daylight saving time, or GMT - 7).

For convenient, SetCronJob shows cronjob's timezone and current time in cronjob's Logs page

User Time Zone

You can also visit My Account tab and select your desired time zone.

Select user timezone for your account

This will set the default timezone for your new cronjobs :-)

Daylight Saving Time is supported

SetCronJob does support Daylight Saving Time (DST), where we move our clocks back and forth (Spring forward, Fall back).

It's useful when you'd like your cronjob to follow the time change in some nations/areas that observe DST.
