  • type (mandatory) must be timezone.
  • name (mandatory) is the unique name of the field.
  • label (mandatory) (translatable) is the descriptive title of the field.
  • default (optional) (translatable) is the default time zone. For example, use '-10' for '(UTC -10:00) Hawaii'.
  • description (optional) (translatable) is text that will be shown as a tooltip when the user moves the mouse over the drop-down box.

Example XML field definition:

<field name="mytimezone" type="timezone" default="-10" label="Select a timezone" description="" />
