On Google Calendar I'm able to manually create an event that starts and ends in different time zones:
I would like to recreate entries like this using the import feature in Google Calendar (
(gear) > settings > import & export > (select file) > import).
I have tried the following, which does import, but the resulting calendar entry is incorrect:
BEGIN:VCALENDAR BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Eastern Time - New York:20191207T124500 DTEND;TZID=Eastern European Standard Time - Cairo:20191208T050500 DESCRIPTION:Event starting NY 12:45pm (local time) - ending Eastern Europe 5:05am (local time) LOCATION:Atlantic SEQUENCE:0 STATUS:CONFIRMED SUMMARY:Flight TRANSP:TRANSPARENT END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
The resulting entry makes incorrect assumptions about time zones, presuming the entries are zulu or something.
I have also tried to set the
TZID parameter to things like "GMT-04:00", but those did not successfully import to Google Calendar at all. And using
DTSTART:20191207T124500Z works, but doesn't do what I want.
My starting point for this endeavor was to export a calendar entry that had the time zone details, but that did not export with the time zone details (only exported in GMT+00:00 zulu).
So in summary, I'm able to import, just need to figure out how to import an event and have it show different starting and ending time zones.
