If you happen to know the state from which the prospect is, for example in the USA, you can add it in the “STATE” column. It can be either a full state name or a two-letter abbreviation. Woodpecker will detect the timezone correctly then.

Q: Will it work out the time zone if I just have the country code? For example GB or the US?

Yes, you can also include the country codes and the timezone will be detected as well, so if you wish you do not need to write the whole country name.

Q: Can I also use postal codes to detect timezone?

No, we do not detect timezones based on postal codes.
