Add Multiple Timezones to a Google Calendar

< 1 minute read

If you frequently send invitations to people in different timezones, you know that Google Calendars automatically reflect the differences in the invitation. But scheduling a meeting can still be a little tricky if you’re not sure what the difference actually is.

Google Calendars actually allow you to add a second timezone to your default view, so you can always know the time in a different place. If your organization has offices in multiple locations, this can be a great way to ensure you’re always on the same page with your team.

There is also an option to add labels to your timezones, so you can be reminded what times you’re looking at inside of your calendar.

To add a second timezone to your Google Calendar:

  1. Click on the Gear inside of Google Calendar and select ‘Settings’
  2. In the ‘Your current time zone’ section, click the blue text that says ‘Show an additional time zone’
  3. Select your second timezone from the drop down menu
  4. In the text boxes to the right of your timezones, add labels for easy reference
  5. Be sure to click the check box labeled ‘Display all time zones’ and save your changes when you’re done
