Regional Settings provide an area to configure the areas that your business performs business:
List of countries to be added
List of provinces or states per country
Countries and provinces/states can only be selected from a predefined dropdown containing a global list of all countries and states. The list of cities is also pre-populated, but the user will be allowed to define new cities as and when required.
Addresses can be associated with contacts and accounts. The information entered when setting up accounts and contacts can only use countries and states that have been set up via the regional settings.
All dates and times in the system are stored in UTC. Client facing operations such as the scheduling of Bill Runs can be configured in client time. While creating new users, a time zone can be specified. The interface will honor the time zone associated with the user for date time operations when that user logs in.
