Looking for help with your list?
Mailchimp lists are now called audiences. They include the same data and functionality as before, along with valuable new insights about your contacts. As we introduce this change over time, you’ll notice fewer places where we still say list. Learn more about this change.
Your account uses important data settings to manage things like your time zone, currency, company information, notifications, and more. Your default information affects what you see and do in your account, from sending email campaigns to billing.
Users with Admin level access can enable notifications to send an alert via email or SMS when a change is made to these settings. This is optional, but recommended for account security.
In this article, you'll learn how to change the default settings for your account.
Set Account Defaults
You can change your settings at any time on the Details page in your account settings.
On your account Details page there are a few sections where you can set default settings. If you add or alter information, you’ll need to click Save to save changes to that specific section.
In your account Details, you’ll view or change your account name, set your time zone, choose a preferred date and time format, and a default currency format.
View our update your account name. This is not visible to contacts. Your account name appears at the top of your profile menu and on the login page if you use more than one account.
Use the drop-down to set your time zone. We'll use your time zone to display times for email campaigns and automation email sends, list imports, and contacts’ signup times.
Date and Time Format
Choose the date and time format (MM/DD, DD/MM, 12-hour, 24-hour) that appears throughout your account. Dates and times will display in campaigns, list creations, and date fields in a list. Date fields imported into a list will also reflect the account's default date and time format.
