Locale TabBack to top
The locale screen is where you set your timezone, base currency, and system-wide language.
- TimezoneBack to top
Select the time zone in which your business is located. This is important as it can affect notification schedules and any other time-based features such as event rulesets.
- Base CurrencyBack to top
This is the global operating currency for your Checkfront account. It's not currently possible to offer pricing to your Customers in more than one currency, so choose wisely when making your currency selection, especially if you have multiple business locations and global clientele.
- LanguageBack to top
The default system-wide language for your account can be configured here, by selecting the desired language entry from the Language dropdown menu.

Based on the language you have selected in the previous step, you may be presented with multiple locale options in the locale drop-down field. Many countries around the world speak the same language(s), but they don't necessarily follow the same format for numbers, currency, and dates.
The locale field provides the opportunity to choose the most appropriate number and currency formats for your location.
As you can see in the example above, when selecting the English language, you are presented with multiple locale options ranging from Great Britain and the United States to Australia and Hong Kong.
Choose the one that best suits your needs, and if necessary, you can customize the date and time formats in the next step.
- Time FormattingBack to top
The format for which your date and time are displayed is set by the locale you have chosen in the previous step.
We realize that not everybody operating in the same locale wishes to format their dates and times in the same way, so we have given you the option to override these settings to something you feel is more appropriate.
You can perform this override by changing the formatting via the dropdown menus, as shown below.
