Helping you manage projects across multiple time zones
Many of you have been asking how we intended to support time zones within Project. It's now time (it's actually 11:00 GMT+1:00H in Paris) to give you a little heads up on our plans.
Getting started with a project time zone
Currently all projects are in the Paris time zone. Not ideal if your project is in the US. So the first sep is to allow administrators to define a project time zone for each project.
Addressing User time zones
You will come across project members in the Project Overview app and we want to allow for a display of each user time zone so every member knows where each project member is based. Displaying the offset in different user time zones will also help.
The final step
Ultimately we will support projects in different time zones with members within each project which are also in different time zones. To achieve this we need to choose the specific areas in our apps where to display the right time zone information. The first step is to display within a project the time zone of that project and the offset with each user's time zone.
We will also provide indications of project versus user time zones in email notifications, tasks due dates (a set due date is always set to 12:00 in the project time zone), reminders and obviously milestones.
And now back to work (11:14 GMT+1:00 Paris)
