What Time Zone am I in currentlyIn which time zone do I currently find myself?
Prior to examining the detail of how time zone standardization works in Outlook, it is important to identify some important notions. ATC stands for Coordinated World Time. "Consider this the real time on planetary ground that never changes (except for small lease seconds here and there to take into consideration changes in the planetary rotation).
The time zone shift is the time for your geographical zone in terms of in-time. The Pacific time zone, for example, is 8 hour behind time. So if it's 20:00 h US CET, the time in the Pacific time zone is midday. Summer time regulations are the regulations according to which certain areas adjust their time zone offsets according to the season.
Those rulings contain a starting date and an ending date for the daylight saving time as well as the number of lessons for the time zone mismatch. Thus, for example, in summers the time in the Pacific time zone can be counted as 7 hrs below zero, while for the remainder of the year the time is counted as 8 hrs below zero.
The Windows time zone and daylight saving system saves all time zone and daylight saving time regulations for the entire planets in the Windows time zone inventory. It will be saved in the Windows register under the following subkey: Window' time zone currently set is the setting that Windows currently uses to set the time for your computer.
Out of all the time zone rule sets in the Windows time zone databases, only one daylight saving time rule can be used. Actual Windows time saves the rule that is currently used to compute the time on your computer. Windows' latest time zone setting is saved in the Windows registry under the following subkey:
The computer time is the real time that Windows displays, as shown in the following screenshot of the Info pane. When you click this part of the Windows Notifications pane, you see an expanded calendars and an expanded watch. Click Modify date and time setting to check the time zone setting for your computer (screenshot for this stage is shown below).
The computer time is determined by taking the ATC time, add an offsets basing on the time zone set for your computer, and then adjust the optional DST offsets (depending on the DST rules). Use the following equation to compute the computer time: Remember that this approach shows how humans have declared themselves willing to think about the notion of time.
Ensuring that two persons who have the same meeting ticket participate in the meeting at the same time may seem like a straightforward job. But if you are adding scenes where time zone changes with different summer time policies, the computation becomes complicated. Your organizer of the meeting has the following Windows time zone settings:
Your participant has the following Windows time zone settings: At 7:00 p.m. on November 20, 2011, the organiser of the meeting creates a Meeting in their schedule for November 20, 2011. 1 Event 1: The organiser submits a Meet Ticket with time zone information On the organiser's computer, the Event in the Ticket is set to begin at 7:00 a.m. On the organiser's computer, Outlook submits the Meet Ticket.
Following the creation of the session, the authorities shall enact a new Act providing that summer time in the Pacific Time Zone shall commence on 2 February 2011 and end on 1 December 2011. Since there are new time zone regulations and the date is in the timeframe in which a new time zone regulation is used, a standardization takes place (steps 2 and 3).
Outlook uses the participant's computer to calculate the scheduled time of the meeting from the information in the Meeting Request: At the participant's computer, Outlook will normalize the time of the meeting on the participant's computer using the Windows time zone registry to set the time of the session to this time.
The participant specifies the proper time for this event for the participant's time setting. On the participant's computer, Outlook will convert the Outlook utility time to on-premises computer time using the participant's latest Windows time zone setting. Corresponds to 10:00 Eastern Time, the participant's computer time, and this is the time the participant is scheduling the session on their calender.
If you do not choose Set Daylight Saving Time Auto on the participant's computer, there may be a difference in the time zone shift (one additional hour off ) between the time zone rule in the Windows time zone registry and the Windows time zone setting.
In order to choose the Automatic adjustment of the watch to daylight saving time option, click Modify Time Zone in the Date and Time dialogue field to open the Time Zone Settings dialogue field (screenshot for this stage is shown below).
