As I write this, I'm in EST (GMT - 5), and I'm trying to add an event for a couple of months from now when I will be in EDT (GMT - 4). Say the event is at 12:00 noon. When I add the event, it adds at noon, but this is incorrect because after the time change, the event will move an hour earlier on the calendar. I'm adding like this (and even specifying EDT):
But the event is created like this:
I could remember this trap and mentally correct for it, but what I really want is to be able to specify a time like 3/20/2014 at 12:00 in Eastern time, and have the app determine that this actually means EDT and NOT EST, and place the event correctly.
That might be asking a bit too much, but what's the closest I can get to this without writing a custom app?
