Calendar Timezone lock
Would be nice to get a Timezone lock function. The iOS stock calendar app has it. It prevents entries to move in the calendar when you move with the device clock into a different time zone. I.e. I entered my flight departure is at 10am because I know it'll be at 10am that location. Outlook will currently move it as per the no. of hours the Timezone differs.
Please listen to your customers.
We clearly need appointments to lock to a time, regardless of time zone.
Planning ahead and laying out your week ahead in a different time zone, means booking meetings at 3am etc.
Regular activities that happen regardless of where you are in the world need to be locked in.
I have just been in 3 time zones in 3 days and had to keep re-adjusting my schedule each time.
Please fix it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, we can set for the various time zones, but locking appointments to a particular time regar
Adding a time zone locking option would be huge. Right now I have to use the apple calendar app when traveling to keep appointments straight. Please add so I can use outlook app for everything.
iPhone set to time zone. Outlook calendar still shifts. Unusable.
I have been travelling overseas and the diary function is hard to use when you can’t lock down your home time in the diary like you can in the iOS diary. It means if people have added diary entries in the local time (say a 1pm appointment) not knowing about the time difference your diary will often split when you are away. Really hard to manage. Thanks.

Yes, please add the option to lock time zone. It is frustrating as anything to have things automatically shift when I travel. Do the ms team never actually go anywhere? the rest of us do. When I make an appointment for 3pm I want it stay as 3pm.

There is no option to set a different time zone than the one you are in when setting appointments. This is an important feature to have for people who travel a lot.
I HAVE to use the Outlook app for my work phone so have no option to use another app. Why can I not LOCK my time zone? Simple enough to fix Microsoft! ugh.

Life doesn’t fall into neat little windows of time. Sometimes a train leaves at 07:27 and I’d like to make an appointment with the correct departure time on my phone. But I can’t. Just let me type the time I want instead of forcing me to use a slider with pre-set time intervals.

A feature to disable changing appointment times in outlook calendar when travelling and visiting time zones different to when the original appointments made. The times need to stay the same esp if appointments still being made for the original source of time. IE live on east coast. All appointments east coast time. Can still make appointments for clients even if holidaying or working in a different time zone.

In calendar settings it would be great to have the ability to lock the time zone so when traveling it does not automatically change.

Calendar should have the option to lock time zone and not update it with the phone. See relevant feature provided by the iOS calendar.

A thousand times yes. This is a REALLY annoying ‘feature’ of Outlook and needs fixing ASAP.

Many of our top executives travel globally on a weekly basis. This is extremely frustrating for them. Most have reverted back to the Native IOS calendar but this tends to create more confusion for them with reminders.

Yes! I live and work right by a time zone change and it always screws up my appointment times!
I travel and need to be able to select the time zones for specific future activities that I am scheduling.
I travel a lot and I need to have time zone function in Calendar. In general Calendar functionality should improve - private appointments are missing, no time zone options...
This new calendar is useless without a way to ensure that a "10:00am" appointment stays at 10:00am, regardless of which time zone I am in. I live on the east coast USA and travel frequently to Asia. When we agree to meet at 10:00am I put it in my calendar as a 10:00am meeting, even though the meeting is in Hong Kong. But, when I get to Hong Kong it now shows my meeting at 10:00pm the previous night. This has to be fixed! Flights, meetings, everything got mixed up on my recent trip because of this calendar.

Without a timezone lock, travel with app gets very confusing. Please allow us to lock this current feature/bug.

Agree with what everyone has said. Travel frequently and difficult to accept invites due to the calendar changing time zones with the phone.
