World Clock

The world clock column will hold the current time of any place in the world. This can be useful for seeing times across different time zones.

Check out our help center to learn more about the world clock column.

Reading the world clock column

You can return the data in a world clock column in two different formats. The text field will return the data as a simple string, and the value field will return the data as a JSON string.

Here is an example payload showing both fields:

  "text": "US/Pacific",
  "value": "{\"timezone\":\"US/Pacific\",\"changed_at\":\"2022-07-21T12:00:00.000Z\"}"

Updating the world clock column

You can update a world clock column with a JSON string. Simple string updates are not supported.


To update a world clock column, send the timezone of the user as a string in continent/city form. You can find the list of available timezones here.

For example: "{\"timezone\":\"Europe/London\"}"

Code example

mutation {
  change_multiple_column_values(item_id:11111, board_id:22222, column_values: "{\"world_clock\" : {\"timezone\" : \"Europe/London\"}}") {
fetch ("", {
  method: 'post',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY'
  body: JSON.stringify({
    query : "mutation ($myBoardId:Int!, $myItemId:Int!, $myColumnValues:JSON!) { change_multiple_column_values(item_id:$myItemId, board_id:$myBoardId, column_values: $myColumnValues) { id }}",
    variables : JSON.stringify({
      myBoardId: YOUR_BOARD_ID,
      myItemId: YOUR_ITEM_ID,
      myColumnValues: "{\"world_clock\" : {\"timezone\" : \"Europe/London\"}}"
curl "" \
-H "Content-Type:application/json" \
-H "Authorization:MY_API_KEY" \
-d '{"query":"mutation{change_multiple_column_values(item_id:162169283, board_id:162169280, column_values:\"{\\\"world_clock\\\" : {\\\"timezone\\\" : \\\"Europe/London\\\"}}\"){name}}"}'
