How do you set a default time zone for a Jira Cloud instance?

When working with a Sprint, the days left keeps changing in the middle of the day. I assume this is because it is using an Australia time zone to calculate the Days left in the sprint. Since we are working on Central USA time, it is changing the sprint days left in the middle of the day. 

I thought I had changed it, but apparently I only did it for me, not for our collective Jira Cloud instance. 

Anybody know a way we can do that?

Admin, System, Settings, Default user time zone

But if users have set their own time zone that won't change it

I agree. I have a default user time zone set for our instance, but that has not fixed the problem with the Sprint timer. 

I even have the Board time zone set as Chicago, (Central USA), but that has not fixed the problem either.
