Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Notification of Calendar Events
This is the scenario:
"weekly Friday meeting at 08:00" (The user's timezone is Central Europe, this means +0100 in Winter and +0200 in Summer)
So, what does this mean? (Two cases)
· The daylight savings in effect are from the timezone of the originator user. So there are weekly Friday meeting at 07:00 UTC in _winter_ and at 06:00 UTC in _summer_. This would favor Europeans (and other people with daylight savings), since European Union official schedules are supposed to change in summer to save energy.
· There's no daylight savings. So there are weekly Friday meeting at 06:00 UTC in _winter_ and in _summer_, since the appointment was setup in summer. This would favor international users with other daylight savings or no
daylight savings at all.
This means the user should be able to address this problem selecting the timezone the schedule is to be set up.
What we need is mock-ups that show a tiemzone-aware user interface which is *not* confusing and reasonably easy to use. Someone got a proposal?
