Description Jean-François Fortin Tam 2013-05-19 21:35:07 UTC
Would be really cool for the "Location" field to accept any city (or small country) in the world and set the timezones accordingly, and show an indication to the user of which timezone is used.

For example, if I'm in Montréal and I enter an event located in Berlin, I expect the time I enter to be the time at GMT +1 (or whichever it is at that time of the year) instead of the Montreal time.

Either that, or we can have a traditional system where people have to manually enter the timezone of the event time.

This is required for
- Meetings with people in multiple timezones
- Scheduling travel

Oh yeah, and the option to enter just "UTC" too.
Optional: parsing timezones too (in addition to cities and UTC).
