[SOLVED] Incorrect Time On Microsoft Teams (2023)

The strategies in this post help you to solve the incorrect time issue on Microsoft teams.

I handled an interesting issue in Microsoft teams where in teams meetings for a user and chat conversation had the incorrect time. As you may aware, there is no option on teams app to modify the time zone as it takes your computer time. For some reason, the time set on the computer and Microsoft teams are not same.

The system time is correct (6:15 PM EST) but teams app had the incorrect time (5:15 PM EST). I assumed the Daylight Saving Time (DST) might causing the problem but it is already turned on.

Fortunately, the issue does not occur in the teams web version. This gave me confidence that the issue is related to the user machine or office application. The problem is new to me and I rebuild the office application but unfortunately it did not work.

I ensured the teams desktop client is updated to the latest version and cleared teams cache by following the steps mentioned here. I wanted to check the behavior with a different time zone so I changed my system time zone to IST.

After changed the time, I closed teams desktop app and launched again and the time appears ok. I decided to change the time zone back to EST to check the behavior, since the IST works.

Again, closed the teams desktop client and launched again and correct time started appearing.

I don’t have any clue on why the incorrect time on Microsoft teams initially appeared but after followed these steps, the issue no longer occurs.
