How to: Create events with different time zones

In SharePoint it is not possible to create events in various time zones. Our Time Zone per Event add-on allows you to do this. You can download the add-on here:

Time Zone per Event

The add-on requires either the Calendar E-Mail Extension, the Employee Training Management or the Event Management to be installed, however it will also work with normal SharePoint calendars.

To install the add-on, extract the files to a new folder. There are folders containing setup files for both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013.

Then run the setup as an administrator and follow the instructions on the screen.

Run as administrator

Once the setup has completed, you must go to the Site Settings for the SharePoint site where you wish to use the add-on and then select “Manage site features”.
