I recently spoke to a staff member in the Central Time Zone who needed to send a meeting request to someone in the Pacific Time Zone. She wanted to know if she sent the meeting for 11 am Central Time, if it would show up as 9 am Pacific Time for the person in California. Turns out, it depends on the clock settings on the sender’s computer, and the clock settings on the recipient’s computer.
Fortunately, Microsoft has written a great article explaining it – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/195900.
Not sure if your computer’s clock settings are correct? If you’re using Windows:
- Right click on the clock in the bottom right corner of your screen.
- Select Adjust date/time.
- For Windows XP: select the Time Zone tab. For Windows Vista and Windows 7: select the Date and Time tab.
- Make the necessary adjustments. Don’t forget to check the Daylight Savings options.
- Click OK.
