I have a scenario where I'm setting up a SharePoint Online tenant for an organization that has offices in 6 different timezones.
After consulting this article, https://sharepointmaven.com/sharepoint-time-zone/, it is clear to me that the most practical solution to ensure that timestamps on document libraries make sense is to:
- Leave the Regional time zone settings to default UTC -8 Pacific Time (PT)
- Set the Personal time zone settings for each user based on their home office time zone. Then educate users on changing their personal timezone settings when they are on the road travelling.
Does this sound like a reasonable approach?
I'm mainly concerned in document management scenarios, e.g. how "Date Created" and "Date Modified" are recored in relation to document libraries utilized via the Web UI and Windows Explorer (via the OneDrive Sync client).
