Marketing: N/A

 To set your timezone for your HubSpot Meetings links:

  • Navigate in HubSpot Sales to Sales ToolsMeetings
  • Click Settings in the upper-right hand corner
  • Select Preferences in the left sidebar and scroll to the section for Current time zone
  • Use the dropdown to select your time zone

 

You can also specify a time zone for a specific Meeting URL. To do so:

  • Navigate in HubSpot Sales to Sales ToolsMeetings
  • Find your existing meeting link for editing or click Create meeting link
  • Under the Customize availability section on the second screen in the meeting link editor, select Use custom availability > select a time zone from the dropdown
  • Click NextSave changes

 

When a user clicks your meetings link, the dates and times will be displayed relative to their computer's time zone settings. For example, if you have set your time zone in Settings or the meetings link editor to Eastern time, and the contact's computer is set to Pacific time, the times will be displayed in Pacific time when the contact opens the link.

The images below show the same meeting link displayed in Pacific vs Eastern time.

Additionally, when the calendar event is sent to the contact, the information in the event invitation will use the contact's calendar settings. So even if a contact's computer is in Pacific time, but their Google calendar is set to Eastern, the event invitation will be in Eastern time.
