Display Two Time Zones

The ability to view two time zones at the same time is very convenient if you plan conference calls or meetings with people in another time zone.

Step by Step

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Preferences tab.
  2. Click Calendar Options.
  3. Click Time Zone.
  4. Select the Show an additional time zone check box.
  5. In the Label box, type a description.
  6. From the Time zone drop-down menu, select the time zone you want to add.
  7. If you want your computer clock to automatically make daylight saving time changes, select the Adjust for daylight saving time check box. (This option is available only in time zones that use daylight saving time.)

Now you can be sure you are choosing the appropriate times when scheduling meetings and conference calls around the world.

Note: You can quickly switch your current time zone to the second time zone by clicking Swap Time Zones, which is located in the Time Zone dialog box. This affects all times displayed in Outlook as well as times displayed in other Microsoft Windows®–based programs.
