I have a product where the users of the application are in different timezones and need to display scheduled entered by that user to other user's timezone.  I currently have the scheduler's timezone configured to "Etc/UTC".

The dates saved to the SQL database always equal the dates entered into the scheduler, regardless of the browser's or server's timezone.  It doesn't make sense to me if the incoming time is in UTC time or what???

How am I to convert the times to the appropriate timezone?  I do know what timezone the user is in, as it is part of the user's profile and its not dependent on the browser.


Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

The timezone option It is used to tell the scheduler in what timezone the scheduler events are created and stored on the server. If the timezone is not set the scheduler will use the current browser timezone. This means that users with different timezone settings will see different start and end times. Setting the timezone of the scheduler would make it display the same start and end times regardless of the current user timezone.
