Multiple Time Zones in Shifts
Need the ability to have multiple Time Zones in Shifts. For Global companies a single Time Zone just doesn't cut it.
Thank you for your feedback. We are currently testing this feature internally, and will share an update as soon as one is available.
The entire program is kind of useless without this feature...

I really am waiting for this feature in order to even start using shifts.
Because my team consists of people working across different time zones!

This is a feature I really need. I work with individuals spanning the US, as well as Japan, Korea, and Singapore. Occasionally we include individuals from Europe. Finding appropriate times for meetings is a pain. Please include the ability to see the multiple time zones in both the calendar and in the "scheduling assistant". The latter is not included in Outlook.
Really looking forward to this. My team span across 13 countries and having this will makes teams the tool of choice for us.
1. Have option to assign time zone for staff member.
2. For viewing, I would recommend 2 timelines like in outlook calendar. One that shows local time and other can be selected on a drop down in the day view.
3. In the week view, the shift block can show the assigned staff's local time and the local device time when selected/hovering on top etc.
Yes, I was looking for this function as well. I have employees across three time zones.
There are many of our company's vendors who are across various time-zones.
Keeping track of every other time-zone becomes difficult when arranging meetings.
Please can this be added to MS Teams as early as possible.
For global companies its a must have and should not require a big dev ...
Really need the ability to have multiple timezones

I don't mind if the shift is in one timezone, however, it needs to be able to display in the end user's timezone.

This feature would help a lot for our business. Single time zone just don't work and is really confusing when you have teams around the word. Please prioritize.
Need this feature in global environment.
Multiple Time Zones is ESSENTIAL. Selecting and scheduling shifts using date range is a must. Main Shift view to be able to sort users by Time Zone too for overall 24 hour visual on daily coverage.
Shifts is of no use to our organization that covers all world time zones / regions. Shift manager will need to create in own local time zone and each user to view their own shift in their own local time zone. Another great feature would be to choose what appears dynamically in their own Outlook calendar such as Public Holidays or vacations. Including making shift requests from their Outlook calendar. Multiple options.
I don't find Teams to be a replacement for Outlook calendar as features are missing. It does pick up meetings, but shows only my time (I have 2 zones in Outlook). There are other features in Outlook I continue to use. I wish it would pick up other configuration options and I wonder how much information it shares from Outlook.
This would be absolutely amazing, it's the one feature that will have my company fully transition our rostering onto Teams Shifts (we have 3x regions and visibility to all with 1x roster group is required).
Unfortunately, we are stuck using calendars which becomes tiresome and messy.
Microsoft - please make this a reality :)
We totally need to have at least 4 timezones as our them is working all over the globe. Love to use Shift as it is so easy have all in teams but right now it is so furstrating trying to make shift match each time zone counting plus and minus hours.

This functionality really is rubbish without being able to display the shifts in local time. ITs fine if you just have one region, but not if you have multiple.
Would also be good if there could be an integration into Outlook if chosen, so the shifts appear in the outlook calendar
When will MS Shifts Time Zone be adjusted to display the individual's time zone? We are working with a group across multiple countries and this would be very helpful if able to adjust.
Outlook is a MS product and can easily handle time zones. I can't understand why a newer MS product doesn't have this capability. #movingforwardyetbackward
