Ability to change the timezone for appointments by the user based on their timezone

Hi there,

We have some clients who are based in other countries and we would like to make it easy for them to book appointments. Is it possible to allow them to select the timezone so that they can view the availability in their time zone whereas, we can still keep setting the availability in our time zone?

Kind regards,
Malkiat Singh

    Hello Malkiat,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Currently, allowing clients/visitors to change time zone is not possible and our Appointments+ plugin is picking up time zone settings from general WordPress settings of your site.

    There is a feature request for this already so it would help if you could support it by giving it your vote or just posting in the thread that you'd like such a feature as well. However, I'm not able to give you any estimation on if an when it will be added to the plugin - such features are always added upon community request.

    That being said, I've also found this plugin named "User Time Zone" that's supposed to allow site users to set their own time zones that would be used on front end. I haven't had a chance to test it and it seems that hasn't been updated in over 2 years, so I'm not sure if it will help here and how will it affect Appointments+ but it may be worth giving a try.
