How to Set or Change Date & Time on Polycom Phones

Summary: Resolving incorrect date and time on Polycom phone.

When a Polycom phone is added to to an account, the phone's date and time is acquired from the RingCentral User account's date and time settings. When the phone is unable to sync with RingCentral's date and time servers, the phone may display an incorrect date and time.

NOTE: It is not uncommon for users within an account to be located in various time zones. If the date and time are incorrect for a specific user, it may be necessary to change or set the correct time zone for that user. To change or set the time as a User please see:   Set Hours of Operation and Time Zone.  Similarly, it may be necessary for an account Admin to set a Users time zone. To set the time zone as an Admin please visit:  Set a User's Hours of Operation and Time Zone
