I have the delight and privilege of working with global teams. Twice a year we run into a weird bit where day light savings change times. I use the following two locations in Windows to help with planning meetings and trying to be respectful.
- Windows Clock
- Outlook Calendar with multiple Time Zones!
- Right Click the clock in the bottom right
- Adjust Date and Time
- Slight variations based on edition of windows. Both are top option.
- Scroll down to (near the bottom)
- Add Additional Clocks (Windows 10)
- Additional Clocks (Windows 11)
- You can now add two additional Clocks. Select the time zone and display names.
- These clocks show up when you hover over your clock or when you open Notifications Panel
Clock Bonus Tip – Set Time Zone Automatically and Set Time Automatically.
You probably want those both enabled as well. Especially if you ever travel for work or are a Digital Nomad.
Outlook Calendar with multiple Time Zones!
- Open Outlook > File (upper right) > Options (bottom left)
- Calendar > Time Zones (Down towards the bottom)
Productivity Increases amazaingly.
Outlook Bonus Tip – Book meetings in attendees Time Zones
When creating a new meeting in the Start Time line is a button for Time Zones. Use it and never worry about the miss match in day light savings around the world.
