GitHub uses a strategy that involves the date-time-offset pattern. When you make a commit, the timestamp includes your offset from UTC. You can see this in the API docs for the Commits. The sample they show there uses a commit timestamp of "2010-04-10T14:10:01-07:00". This is a valid ISO8601 representation of a date-time-offset. For the person ...

Unfortunately there is no such option. However, Github displays most dates in a relative style anyway - and that's based on your system time so those values are correct.

At this time there are only two time zones allowed. The option open to you is to suggest to Google adding more than two displayed time zones. The best place to check first is the official suggested features page for Google Calendar. Seeing as how I could not find this suggestion, it is likely not a high priority for the Google Calendar team at this time. ...

Update 20 Feb 2018. From the developer: I've updated when2meet to now include support for scheduling events across multiple time zones. Each participant's time zones are automatically detected for newly created events. The grid is shown as appropriate for each user's time zone, including shifts due to daylight savings. And indeed, if you visit https://...

Time zones have gone through many changes over the years, and these changes are recorded in the IANA/Olson time zone database. Google uses this data to perform the conversions. When values are being converted from one time zone to another, it is essential to have a date as well as a time. Since the source values you provided are time-only fields, then a ...

Gmail shows you the time when a message was sent, based on your local time zone. So the time shown is your local time, not the sender's local time when the message was sent

Since March, 2014 you can, by using Github's commit API to specify the exact timestamp for your commit. To see the the format refer to the developer's documentation. Or you can set the timezone by passing it in headers while making the post request in a commit. like curl -H "Time-Zone: Europe/Amsterdam" -X POST https://api.github.com/repos/github/linguist/...

You can use the compare feature from time.is For example, Comparing New York and GMT at 9:00 gives the following When the time was 09:00 on Tuesday, August 16 in New York, it was 13:00 in GMT. Time since then: 7 hours, 18 minutes and 24 seconds New York is 4 hours behind GMT. New York GMT (+4h) Tue 09:00 Tue 13:00 Tue 10:00 Tue 14:00 Tue ...

The city Iceland -> Reykjavik uses GMT+0 and does not currently observe daylight saving. This will do for now. However, if they were to start using daylight saving then all my meetings scheduled in that time would suddenly be wrong.

When adding +1 it's adding 24 hours. So, do this: =A1+1/24 to add 1 hour to the time, =A2+2/24 for 2 hours, etc.

One option is to change your calendar's time zone while you are in the other time zone. I don't really like that option, but I discovered that you can add additional time zones to your calendar's display. Go to the calendar settings, and right below the time zone you can select an additional time zone to display. (https://webapps.stackexchange.com/a/24171/...

This is an interesting question, because Github keeps a history of some activities you do each day, plus it has a "longest streak" record. I narrowed it down. I made a commit at 1am EST, and another at 6am EST. The 1am commit counted against the day before, and the 6am counted as the day of. This corresponds with the comment on this question, that Also, ...

If you go to New Page Insights and then click on Likes tab, you'll see a text saying Daily data is recorded in the Pacific time zone, so I believe, that all Facebook Pages ads also starts and ends at midnight PT. However, I have no idea, how to change this and if this is possible at all?

The answer, sadly, is it cannot be done, at least not at this time of writing. I wrote to Slack support directly who advise this is not possible. I then asked if they could at least add support so people's default timezone is picked up from their device. They advised this is a commonly requested feature and is on their roadmap. So, I am answering my own ...

You must define the TZIDs used in your iCal file, using the VTIMEZONE component. For example, add this block of code after END:VEVENT to define the "Eastern Time - New York" timezone: BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Eastern Time - New York BEGIN:STANDARD DTSTART:19671029T020000 RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYDAY=1SU;BYMONTH=11 TZOFFSETFROM:-0400 TZOFFSETTO:-0500 TZNAME:EST END:...

Slack does not store the country of a user, but it stores the timezone. It's not a standard feature to list users by timezone, but there are a couple Slack Apps that do that nicely. Check out Team Time Zone or search for similar apps in the App Directory.

Go to your profile. Adjust your default timezone, then it will work.

Google Sheets date handling doesn't include a way to directly recognize date-time that include time zones, but JavaScript does it. You could create a script to return a value that Google Sheets could recognize as a date. I.E. you could create a custom function that use a cell with a date-time string and returns a date object. Related Timezone conversion ...

The way that Sheets and Apps Script handle "dates" are very different. For Sheets the "date" unit is 1 day; The base date is 1899-12-30 0:00:00, getting the timezone from the spreadsheet settings. For Apps Script, which is based on JavaScript, the "date" unit is 1 millisecond. The base date is 1970-1-1 00:00:00 UTC. Below is an example script that if the ...

Only Google Forms for G Suite accounts can automatically capture user data but it's only able to get the user email address. The alternative is to include a question asking for the user time zone. Regarding the graph, Google Forms doesn't do the data adjustments so you should find a way to do that. This could be by using Google Sheets formulas, Google Apps ...

AFAIK Google Calendar doesn't have a URL parameter to display an embeded calendar in the user's local timezone. Instead you need to use JavaScript or something like that. The following posts could give some hints: Getting the client's timezone in JavaScript Support User Time Zone in Embedded Google Calendar tell the user to add your calendar to his/...

Short answer Google Calendar doesn't have a built-in feature to ignore or change the time zone to the local zone of the user but keeping the date and hour. Alternatives Instead of sharing a calendar of Google Calendar share the calendar information in someway that the time-zone is not attached to the date-time data, like a CSV file, spreadsheet, project ...

My system clock was just synced wrong... Move along. Nothing to see here.

My workaround is to include the local time in the event's title. At least you can see it when you look at the calendar even though the calendar's scale may be wrong.

Events can only display on your calendar in one time zone at a time. I'm not certain, but it sounds like you created the event for 13:08 in UTC+4, which Google Calendar was (correctly) showing to you as 12:08 in UTC+3 (your main time zone). If you want to see events in another time zone (such as once you arrive in the other country), you would need to go ...

Now you can set when you will be notified for All-day events in the Google Calendar Settings. Go to calendar.google.com in your browser Click on the gear icon in the upper right and choose Settings Choose Calendars from the top menu Select 'Edit notifications' for the calendar you wish to edit this setting for. The first calendar listed will be your ...
