Outlook calendar default timezone hybrid environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello guys,

    couple years ago I ve set secondary timezone on outlook 2010 calendar. We are running terminal server environment (W  server 2008 R2) Now our management asked me to set just one default timezone accross all offices we do have (prague, bucharest, london, etc.) I ve always been deploying this through registry keys, but now wondering where can I find the default timezone registry key for outlook calendar and how can I deploy it (based on security groups most probably) Basically cant find the HEX values for particular timezones in office registry and cant find the value for default timezone registry key.

    Example of two timezones I deployed in the past:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\TimeZone]
    "SecondaryTZ"=dword:00000001
    "ShortName1"="UK"
    "ShortName2"="Czech"
    "TZ2"=hex:c4,ff,ff,ff,43,00,65,00,6e,00,74,00,72,00,61,00,6c,00,20,00,45,00,75,\
      00,72,00,6f,00,70,00,65,00,20,00,53,00,74,00,61,00,6e,00,64,00,61,00,72,00,\
      64,00,20,00,54,00,69,00,6d,00,65,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,0a,00,00,\
      00,05,00,03,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,43,00,65,00,6e,00,74,00,72,00,\
      61,00,6c,00,20,00,45,00,75,00,72,00,6f,00,70,00,65,00,20,00,44,00,61,00,79,\
      00,6c,00,69,00,67,00,68,00,74,00,20,00,54,00,69,00,6d,00,65,00,00,00,00,00,\
      00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,05,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,c4,ff,ff,ff

    Many thanks for your help in advance!

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, Outlook gets the time zone from Windows and uses the Windows zone as its default time zone.

    According to my research, I'm afraid that there is no such a registry key to set default time zone. We can change zones in File > Options > Calendar > Time Zones.

    In addition, we can also do it from Windows, which can be done from a command line in a couple of steps:

    1. Press Windows Key + R to open the Run command,

    2. Type or paste the following in the command field (using the desired time zone name) and press Enter

    TZUTIL /s "Pacific Standard Time"

    Hope the information is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry
