Setting timezones for individual events

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://queerladymagician.com

I'm making event pages for a tour I'm going on soon. As it takes place in a different country to where I currently live, the timezones would be very different. Yet from the SquareSpace guides it looks like the timezone for events is set to my local timezone - which is going to be a problem for people who want to save the event to their own calendar!

Is there a way to set the timezone for each event based on the location of the event itself?

I'm wondering the same thing. The SquareSpace docs indicate that it's stuck on the local time of the publisher and doesn't automatically convert for a page visitor from a different time zone. "Start and end time. These are based on the time zone set in Language and Region Settings, and won't change based on a visitor's time zone."

If we're lucky, I'll assume that visitors can download a calendar invitation that may convert to local time. But for a general visitor, many events may look like they take place at a crazy time (for example, 3 a.m. Atlanta instead of 9 a.m. Paris). 

I'm surprised that we can't either customize the time as we publish or the site can't ask for location services to automatically convert to visitors' local timezones.
