With Outlook for Mac 2016 it's easy to schedule appointments or meetings in other time zones. When you do not specify a time zone, the time zone from your Mac's operating system is used. Click the Show Time Zone button to choose a time zone. The system time zone is displayed by default. Click the drop down to choose the correct time zone based on the location for the appointment or meeting.
