An Outlook for Mac user wanted to know if it was possible to display multiple time zones in the Outlook Calendar, like you can in the Windows version.
Yes, you can now use multiple time zones in Outlook for Mac. Microsoft listens to user requests and adds the most popular suggestions, and as of December 2018, Outlook for Mac Version 16.20.0 (Build 18120801) Calendar supports three time zones.
To turn on multiple time zones from the calendar:
- Right-click on the time scale in the day or week views.
- Select the additional time zones and enter an short name for the zones
- Once you close the dialog, the second or third time zone will appear in the calendar
You can also enable or change the additional time zones in Outlook's Preferences, Calendar. Note that the default zone for new appointments has nothing to do with the default zone used in the time scale. If you want to change the primary time zone, you'll need to change the Time Zone on the Mac.
Unlike in Outlook for Windows, you can't swap time zones. If you want to swap zones, you need to change the time zone on the Mac and change the secondary zone in Outlook.
