Outlook for Mac adds new time zone features in Insider Fast

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Outlook Blog articles.

Outlook for Mac is now more powerful for managing your time across different time zones. We're now shipping two of our most-requested calendar features: display second time zone on Calendar grid, and allow setting of start/end time zones in events.

 

These features are now available to Insider Fast starting from version 16.11(180214). Enabling second time zone in Calendar grid requires an Office 365 subscription.

 

You can new add a second time zone on the calendar grid so you can easily refer. To show the second time zone, go to Outlook > Preferences > Calendar, or by right-clicking the grid to see the second time zone options :Second TZ.png

 

To schedule an event with a start time and end time being in different time zones (for example, a flight across time zones), simply toggle on the "Time Zone" option via Ribbon, or via menu Message > Time Zone:
