Standardization of time zones settings on enterprise endpoints plays a key role in maintaining accountability and transparency in every facet of enterprise workflow. It is a stringent parameter for enterprises who provide tablets and smartphones to their workforce or patrons to ensure their judicious involvement in predefined activities.

42Gears’ SureMDM now supports an essential script which helps the IT Admin to sync the device time to server time.

Steps to remotely change Time Zones on MDM enrolled devices

1. Login to SureMDM Web Console.

2. On SureMDM Home, click Jobs.

3. On the Jobs screen, click New and select Android.

4. On the Select Job Type screen, click Run Script.

5. On the Run Script prompt, enter Job Name, enter following run script command in Script field and click Save. Specify the string for continent and city names as per the requirement.

!#suremdm
