    I was able to change the timezone Pacific Standard Time under the Settings menu in JotForm. However, when I use the following, all notifications are displayed in Eastern Standard Time (instead of PST).


    {DATE:l, jS \of F Y \a\t g:i A T}



    Thanks for reading!

    I would suggest you to try to re-create your jot form with the new timezone that you have set in your account settings

    Also please refer to this manual in order to customize your format

    Hope this work for you!

    Unfortunately, the time zone settings in your account does not relate to your email's time zone settings.  Let me submit a ticket to the development team regarding this concern.  But I cannot give you a timeframe to when this feature will be updated.  But once it is, we'll sure to let you know.

    Thank you for your patience.

    I popped the following into a notification email so as to advise the reader on the date of submission:

    {DATE:l, jS \of F Y \a\t g:i A}

    Result .....
