Time Zone Support for Calendar
The time zone support should be added for the notifications.
Simon Tidd commented
You can select timezones in the outlook desktop app, why not on mobile. It's difficult to try and get the times right when travelling. Just let us select the timezones...
there should be an option to choose the time zone when scheduling an event using outlook on an android phone. it's a basic feature of every calendar app I've ever used, but not available on this?

Calendar Time Zone selection Outlook for Android.
It is outrageous that this has still not been implemented. People travel. Not having the function can create mayhem.
Please make this an absolute priority. Without it I for one will be looking to find another calendar app.
1. make an appointment with some time zone on your desktop client
2. realize that you made a mistake and try to change it on your phone.
RESULTS cannot make the change.

ability to set time zone for the app

Simply put, for constant travelers and people who manage multiple calendars or schedule meeting with people across time zones... the absence of this essential feature is a barrier to presenting Outlook on Mobile as a viable and reliable alternative to O365 on Desktop. Even for users on the go.
Moreover, if and when Duo comes out and MS PowerUsers have to make a choice between relying on a "handheld" on Android vs another device on a Windows OS (albeit shell)... that can handle win 32... go guess which OS wins that use case?
You need to build more robustness on Android if you wish to promote the long - term survivability of Windows Services on this ecosystem. Because right now, I'm really missing Windows Phone.
When I am creating a new calendar entry there does not appear to be any way to specify a time zone. Since I travel frequently, I often struggle to enter events in a target that is different from the current timezone. The process is error-prone and sometimes I get it wrong when I try to do these calculations in my head.
Outlook for Android does not seem to have any way to see the time zone for an event.
I'm in FL (Eastern time) right now and I need to create an event for work, which is in WA (Pacific time).
I have to manually figure out the time zone difference and do the adjustment myself, and even then it's going to tell attendees using desktop Outlook that the meeting is in Eastern time.
This is cumbersome and ends up looking unprofessional, at best.

Basically... in calendar view add option to have a second timezone.
I want to see my local time zone (a default) along with a foreign country timezone (I.e. China)
I regularly have meetings between two countries and it's annoying having to make manual calculations (while figuring out daylight savings adjustments). Problem especially when I'm working off my mobile

When I schedule a meeting from my office in LA for 10am and then fly to Rome, that meeting now shows àt 9 hours later.. which it should not even though the time zone is 9 hours later. A 10 am meeting is a 10 am meeting not a 7 pm meeting. The local time zone even changes my flight times. none of this should happen!
I just missed an appointment by 2 hours because I had to schedule it when I was on the west coast instead of at home. Even though the appointment had an address in the "proper" timezone. Outlook should detect when you're not in your "usual" timezone, and do a better job at scheduling things in the correct timezone for the appointment. Especially when there are no other people in the appointment. At a minimum it should ask what timezone to store an appointment at, if the location and timezone don't match.
Time zone support is kinda vital on a mobile device. This becomes more important when you consider that phones can use mobile network times. Travelling between timezones, and setting meetings becomes a hit and miss affair.
When traveling, your phone automatically changes time zones. However, when working in the "new" town, all your emails, appointments, etc. are conducted at your office in your home time zone. When entering items into calendar, let me simply add in the correct time zone like we can on the desktop app. This is such an odd missing feature!

Ability to set time zone while scheduling a meeting in Outlook mobile calendar
Janice Ellig commented
please add time zone lock for calendar in Outlook app for android. It really helps when travelling to other time zones
Caroline Sherman commented
I'd like to use the app to schedule appointments in a different time zone than I'm currently in.
David and Annelize Roberts commented
need to be able to set the timezone of meetings, rather than having to mentally computer and adjust meetings so that they appear at the correct relative time when I find myself in different countries and the calendar takes on local time.
Corey Wolfe commented
Yes, this is very much needed. The lack of time support in the calendar makes this app difficult to use for any frequent traveler.
I travel to Europe every month on business. Will be nice to be able to schedule at the local time.
