Time Zone in Outlook Meeting Request

Jump to solution

I have built a workflow that builds an outlook meeting request and sends via attachment, and all works well for the most part. Except when people from different time zones open the attachment. In that case it sets the calendar item for the local time. I'd like to find a way to force the EST into the request so that everyone shows up to the meeting at the same time. Anyone know the iCalendar syntax and how to do this?

I've found the solution to this, and it was pretty simple actually. You just add the time zone code to the date part of the invite like below. You need to add the TZID piece to the end date too.

DTSTART;TZID=Atlantic/Bermuda:fn-FormatDate({ItemProperty:EventDate}, "s")
