Change Calendar Time Zone / Setting Events in Other Time Zones

 

The date and time of all events within TimeTree are based on the mobile device's date and time settings.

When traveling to a location within a different time zone, all times of events within TimeTree will change as your mobile device's default time changes as well.

i.e. While planning for a trip from Tokyo to London, one might create an event that will occur at 8:00 am December 1st in London as they plan their travel in Tokyo, However, upon arriving in London, the event's time would have changed to 11:00 pm, November 30th.

However, with the android version's 6.3.0 update and the iPhone version 6.14.0 update, you may select the time zone manually for each event rather than automatically syncing with your mobile device.

 

■ How to change the timezone your calendars and events are displayed in

  1. Open your mobile device's settings
  2. Tap "General"
  3. Tap "Date & Time"
  4. Turn off "Set Automatically"
  5. Choose time zone

■ Changing Timezone for specific events 

Time zones can be selected while creating events.

This feature is most useful when planning business trips or overseas vacations.

It is also useful when sharing events with people in different time zones.

If you wish to edit multiple events, each specific event within a calendar will need to be edited individually.

 

  • I wish to view and keep the time when I first created the event
    1. Open the main menu by tapping the 3 horizontal lines in the top left hand side of the screen
    2. Have the [Time Zone] option set to [show] under [App Settings]
    3. While creating an event, check to make sure the time zone is set to your current time zone.
    4. Even after you have moved to a location with a different time zone, the event will saved to the original time zone chosen when first created

  • I wish to view and set the event in the timezone of my destination
    1. Open the main menu by tapping the 3 horizontal lines in the top left hand side of the screen
    2. Have the [Time Zone] option set to [show] under [App Settings]
    3. When creating an event, tap the [Time Zone / *your current time zone] and select your destination's time zone
