How to Sync Notifications for Time Zone Update 

For participants traveling to another location with different time zones, they can update it to sync their notifications. If you have a survey to complete at 9 am, and you are on the East Coast(New York), and you traveled to the West Coast(California), your time zone will be -3 hours, resulting in your survey arriving at 6 am. Updating your time zone will fix the time, and you will receive the notification back to the original time (9 am).

Participants can simply go to their ExpiWell mobile app and slide from the left side of the screen to see the settings.
