Feature Request: Manually set and fix time zone


#1

My team is remote and work across geographies. I also travel to various time zones. I find it difficult to manage dates in the tasks when I’m not sure which time zone the task is creating it in. For example, something that might be due on Wednesday in the U.S. would be due on Thursday in Asia. If I’m physically in the U.S. when I set this task, then great. If I’m traveling in Asia and I forget, I might set the task to be due on Wednesday intending that to be for the U.S., but Asana is actually setting it on Tuesday in the U.S. The same applies for those who travel to the U.S. from Asia.

Ideally, I’d like to be able to specify a fixed time zone for my own user account, so that no matter which time zone I am in, I know that when I create or update the task’s deadlines, that I am setting it correctly for the whole team. Currently, I have to actively think about it depending on where I am.

I really like this and can definitely get on board with it - while not such an extreme case, I work in different timezone remotely so if we set due times it often throws me a little cause I have to remember if it’s my time its using or theirs, lol. I also think, with Asana expanding into other markets, this will be a consideration for them (or should be).
