New Timezone Chooser 🌍⏰

Published 5 months ago • 1 min read

Hey everyone,

we got a handy little update for you—say hello to the timezone chooser popup in Stagetimer.

Why You Need This

Working with a global team? This feature lets you keep all timestamps in one time zone. If your browser gets the time zone wrong, you can easily correct it. Planning a show in one time zone but performing in another? Just set the event's time zone to keep your timer on point.

How to Use It

The Controller page now has a clickable timezone next to the clock, under the transport controls. Click it and you get a modal to switch from the auto-detect to your chosen timezone.

The update is available after a page reload.

Who Can Use It?

The timezone chooser is available to paid and free user.

The Tech Bit

For the tech-curious, this feature uses the ‘date-fns-tz’ package along with Vue and Node.js.

What Happens to Old Rooms?

Don’t worry, your old rooms will still use the browser’s default timezone. You’ll have to manually switch to use the new feature.

CSV Exports?

Your CSV exports will also be in the chosen timezone now. Before, they were in UTC. Oh, and the CSV says what timezone it’s in. Handy, right?

Some Caveats

This is still experimental. It should work, but bugs can happen. If you spot any, let us know.

Want to Get a Stagetimer T-shirt?

Send us a video showing how you use Stagetimer in your events, meetings, or presentations and we will send you a Stagetimer T-shirt to thank you for your feedback and time.

You can show how you set it up, how you run your events with Stagetimer, or even the event itself. We will then share it on our website and YouTube channel so other people can learn from you.

Here's an example of a video from one of our users:

What’s Next?

Team accounts are coming. You’ll be able to invite people and share your rooms. Stay tuned.


That’s it. Go check it out and let us know what you think.

Cheers,
Lukas from Stagetimer
