Legalsigning – TimeZone for Audit Trail

Response on February 2, 2023 re can you change time zone

The timezone in the audit trail is not customizable, it always being UTC is intentional and is the standard formatting for timestamps in signature audit trails across the vast majority of e-signature platforms in their audit trails/signature logs.

Times logged in UTC allow timestamps to be universal regardless of the system’s or user’s location should the details around the signature ever be challenged under law. A UTC timestamp is by far the most accurate and consistent way to record time when that timestamp is a vitally important point of data like in a signature audit trail.
