The TZ offset is already in the ACT! data ... so how about making it available in the User Interface.
This would mean I can set a call to speak to a contact at 9am their time
Or to schedule activities in local times before I travel

Excellent suggestion, Mike
I figure, as the OffSet is already there, the only hard part will be a data table for DST
In fact ... it could even be done in a service pack because no database structure changes as far as I can see
We have a terminal server with users spread across time zones.
I would love to be able to easily have each user specify which timezone they are in. As they travel, they should be able to easily change this. Their calendar should show their local timezones.
It would be great if we can specify a default timezone not just for users but for contacts, and the ability to specify which timezone a contact is in. This would make scheduling appointments better. Head office (timezone A) could schedule a call for a user (timezone B) for a contact (timezone C) and be able to accurately convey to the each participent what time and day it is for.
This would be a GREAT feature.
This is an excellent idea. The other issue is when you have multiple people using the database that are in different time zones. When I schedule a meeting for myself and others in the company I always get several reminders for the same meeting because one will come at 8am for the moutain time folks and 10am eastern time for me. I have to ignore the reminders in ACT because otherwise I would go crazy and not know which time is ever correct!
