Convert time zone
When a Teams team member from another country pastes a time into Teams (e.g. 3:00 PM Pacific time), it's hard to understand what time that is in my own time zone. Especially with big time zone differences (e.g. Europe vs US) I would like to see an automatic converter to my own time zone. I see the following possibilities:
- Convert when hovering/force touch the time/date mentioned
- Automatically convert the time when viewing the post in Teams. Also show an info icon next to the time that the time was automatically converted when hovering over the icon.
Hope this feature is going to make it in Teams. Please let me know if something is unclear.
Keep up the good work!
I like Ronald's suggestion; this should be a syntax similar to an @mention that you can type to make datetime values automatically convert when they are displayed. This feature would be especially useful for teams that work internationally.

If I am in PST, a notation like #1400 could be automatically converted to somebody in the EST zone as #1700 (The '#' would indicate it was converted from another timezone) of course all kind of date-time formats would be supported.
