How-To: Display two time zones in Microsoft Outlook

Often, we work with two time zones in mind. The meetings or the calls that we subscribe to, are fixed based on the time zones of the clients/vendors or for that matter, the prospective attendants.

Mahesh Moorthy writes in his mail “I usually work with my German counterparts who sit in another part of the world which has a different time zone. While scheduling meetings using my Outlook calendar, I fix up meetings after calculating the time differences. Is there a tool or some way out to get rid of this problem of mine? “

Mahesh, the answer to your problem exists in Microsoft Outlook itself. This problem can easily be solved by making your Microsoft Outlook calendar show two time zones as shown in the picture below.
