Time zones in resource plans

Time zones are important in resource management when the users and groups doing the resource tasks are located in different locations.

Users maintain their time in the My Calendar module and resource managers use the resource workbench or resource plan to assign tasks to various users.

All users are assigned a schedule. If a user schedule changes, all time calculations change automatically. The schedules can be floating or time zone-specific.
  • A floating schedule is the same in any time zone. For example, if a resource manager in Amsterdam sets a floating schedule for 8:00A.M.–5:00P.M., a user in San Jose sees the schedule as 8:00 A.M.–5:00 P.M.

  • When a schedule is defined in a specific time zone, users in different time zones see the schedule with their own time zone applied. For example, if the resource manager sets a time zone-specific schedule for 8:00 A.M.–5:00 P.M. in Amsterdam, the San Jose user sees the schedule as 11:00 P.M. of the previous day to 7:00 A.M. on the current day because the San Jose time zone is nine hours behind the Amsterdam time zone.
