How to Make Everyone View the Calendar in Local Time Zone

A user asked: “We will be sharing the calendar with people who live across the U.S.; how can we set the meeting time (in one time zone) to automatically integrate to their calendar when sharing in their own time zone?”

A Teamup Calendar can work very well in that kind of situation.  You do need to enable the automatic time zone conversion in Settings -> General Settings:

set-time-zone-conversion

Now if you set up the meeting on your calendar in your time zone, and the others in other parts of the world are viewing their calendars in their local time zone, then it will show at the corresponding time.

So a meeting is set up at 10am by someone in Chicago, then it will show up as a meeting at 11am in New York for a person viewing the calendar in New York.

If that person is in Berlin, Germany, now but will be in New York at the meeting time, from his own calendar view he can choose the New York time zone to display the exact time of the event.  This can be done by selecting the expected time zone from the calendar view:

Give it a try if you work with teams across multiple time zones, or if you just travel often and need to convert it to your local time.
