Set timezone for users who self register on a Community

Knowledge Article Number 000233073
Description By default when self registration is used on a Community the timezone is not set to the organization default, and there does not appear to be a way to change this setting.
Resolution The default timezone for user records that are created by self registration on a Community is set based on the timezone of the Site Guest User for that particular Community. You will need to update this user record timezone in order to set the default for your Self Registration users. 

To update the Site Guest User please use the following click path:

From Setup go to All Communities > Manage (For the Community you wish to update) > Administration > Pages > Go to

Click Public Access Settings and then View Users to display the Site Guest User for editing.

After you have updated the timezone any new users created using Self Registration will have the updated timezone.
