Written by:

Managing time across different global locations can be challenging, especially when planning meetings, travel, or remote work. Our Time Zone Conversion Calculator simplifies the process by allowing you to convert time and date information between various time zones quickly and accurately.

How to use the time zone converter

Converting time zones is straightforward with our tool. Here’s how to use the calculator:

  • Set the date and time: Enter the local date and time you wish to convert.
  • Choose your current time zone: Input your current time zone or city in the designated field. (By default, the tool will try to guess.)
  • Add conversion zones: Input the time zone or city to which you want to convert the time. You can delete the field and select from the menu or start typing to filter the list of time zones. You can add multiple conversion zones by clicking the Add Time Zone button.
    • Remove unnecessary zones: If you need to remove any added time zones, simply click the minus button next to the respective time zone input.
  • Calculate: Click the Calculate button to see the converted times across the selected time zones.

This tool is designed to provide clear and concise results, making it easier for you to schedule and plan across different time zones.

Understanding the output

Once you've entered your data and clicked Calculate, the calculator will display:

  • Converted Time and Date: For each selected time zone, you'll see the corresponding local time and date.
  • Day of the Week: It also shows the day of the week for the converted time, helping you plan weekly activities.
  • Daylight Saving Time: Indicates whether daylight saving time is in effect in the converted time zone.
  • Daytime/Nighttime Indicator: Visual icons show whether it's day or night in the converted time zone, useful for avoiding calls during inconvenient hours.
