Timezone support

Post by rj_franklin » Fri Mar 08, 2013 11:08 am

It would be great if I could pick a timezone when making or editing an appointment. I know I can add an additional timezone hour key to the left side of my calendar. However, I've found that the key does not adjust when my default timezone enters daylight savings time, but the secondary timezone does not transition to DST. For example, today Abu Dhabi (GMT+4) is 9 hours ahead of US Eastern (GMT-5), but on Monday (March 11, 2013) Abu Dhabi (GMT+4) is only 8 hours ahead of US Easter (GMT-4).

Just one of the reasons why I hate daylight savings time...

Hi rj_franklin, thank you for the suggestion. I have adding support for creating events in other time zones on my to-do list and will post a reply when it's finished.

+1 for this feature. I work in multiple time zones and this is a significant issue as I add an appointment in VueMinder, my main calendar app and then have to go to google calendar to adjust to correct timezone if it’s not my local.
Adding a Timezone is my single biggest bug bear at the moment.
Cheers
David
