Events booked through Robin show in Outlook in UTC instead of my local timezone (Exchange only)

What is UTC?

UTC - or coordinated universal time - is an international standard for measuring date and time. UTC does not observe daylight savings, and is mostly interchangable with GMT

Meeting times and daily schedules are displayed in whatever timezone your browser is set to, both in Robin and in Outlook. However, Robin stores all events in UTC to avoid any conflicts among timezones. This makes sure your calendars are blocked off when they should be, so you won't run into any conflicts with double booking.

Exchange users

When you open a Robin-created event from your Outlook calendar, the start and end time show up in the UTC time. If you'd like the event to display in your current timezone, you can make the update from the dropdown menu.
