Set your timezone in Microsoft Bookings

Questions

  • How do I set my Microsoft Bookings calendar time zone?
  • Why is my availability showing up in a Universal Time Zone and how do I change it?

Cause/Explanation

When you first use Microsoft Bookings, the calendar will default to a Universal Time Zone. You need to set your current time zone for your availability to show up correctly.

Resolution

  1. From inside your Microsoft Bookings calendar webpage click on the "Booking Page" tab within the left-side menu
  2. Below "Region and time zone settings" (at the bottom of the page) click "Change language and time zone settings" (blue link)
  3. Change the "Current time zone" to your current time zone
  4. It is not recommended to select "Always show time slots in business time zone" unless you only ever meet with people in your current time zone, this way when people are booking time with you they can choose how to display your availability based on their time zone.
