If you use Outlook all day and have contacts in different parts of the country, having multiple time zones in the calendar is critical. Here’s how to add them.
Microsoft Outlook is one of those apps I keep open all day at work, and being that I have employees all around the globe, my day is pretty much dictated by the meetings in my calendar. Although I use multiple clocks on my Windows Taskbar, being able to look at my calendar and see different time zones is critical when attending or scheduling meetings.
Add Extra Time Zone to Outlook
I’ve demonstrated adding multiple time zones in the past for Outlook 2007; however, the UI changed with Outlook 2010/2013, so here’s a quick refresher.
Open Outlook and Click File > Options.
Click the Calendar Tab.
Scroll down to the Time Zones section. Here I recommend you first add a Label to your current Time Zone. In my example, I added SEA for Seattle.
Now, check the box Show the second time zone. Give it a label and choose the additional time zone from the drop-down menu.
Click OK to save the new configuration and then jump over to your Calendar to check out the new Time Zone in action. As you can see, space is limited, so it’s better to keep the Labels short, so they are easy to read.
The above image shows how to add a time zone in Outlook 2010 Calendar, and the process is the same for 2013.
