How to Create Events in a Time Zone Local to the Event but not Local to the Person who Is Creating the Event

All event times on display (in event viewer or editor or event page)are relative to the time zone displayed in the time zone indicator in bottom right.

The Story

Paul manages a touring theatre show that needs to cover multiple time zones. So he needs to be able to create events in the time zone that is local to where the event takes place.

All users use time zone support on their local devices, so they need the events in the calendar to be local to those locations.

Paul and his organizing team, based in London, will enter all events.

The Challenge

How to create events in the time zone that is local to the event when Jodi, the person who enters the event to the calendar, is in another time zone?

The Solution

It’s simple: Jodi first changes the time zone in the bottom right corner of her Teamup Calendar to the time zone that is local to the event, then create the event.

The demo below shows how to change the time zone from London to Athens before entering a show that will take place in Athens at 9 am local time.
