Change calendar’s time zone

 

■ Time Zone Change

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

When traveling to a different location with a different time zone, all time 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 08:00 December 1st in London as they plan their travel in Tokyo, However, upon arriving in London, the event's time would have changed to 23:00 November 30th.

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

 

■ How to view the time of event before auto time zone syncing for iOS (TBA) & Android (Before ver. 6.3.0 update) users

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

 

 ※ Event time zone setting is only limited to android users after the 6.3.0 update. Our team is working towards releasing the same feature for iOS users and is still under-development.

 

■ Being able to change time zone by event (Android)

After TimeTree's 6.3.0 update for android, time zones can be selected while creating events.

It is most useful when planning on business trips or overseas vacations.

It is also useful to share a mutual event from a different time zone.

 

  • I wish to view and keep the time when I first created the event
    1. Open the main menu from the left side of the screen.
    2. Have the [Time Zone] option turned on 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 your original time zone when first created.
