How do I check if the time zone offset in ConfTool is correct?

You can find many services that show the current time for all international time zones.
An example is:

Just compare if the displayed time is correct.

You can define the time zone for your conference easily.

Please go to:
Overview => Settings => Main Setup
There are two different versions currently avaible:
  • For ConfTool Version 2.6.105 and higher, please go to the section "Time Zone" and for the option "* Time Zone" choose a city that corresponds with your current time. For the option "* Time Zone of Your Conference" you can keep the setting "%1" which will automatically insert the official abbreviated time zone name, or enter an abbreviation that is more fitting (see image 1).
  • For older versions, please go to the section "Time Zone Offset" and for the option "* Time Zone Offset" select the correct time of day by adding or subtracting hours from the current server time. Our servers are based in Germany (GMT+1). For the option "* Time Zone of Your Conference" enter the abbreviated time zone name. You might have to change the offset and time zone name when daylight saving time starts or ends.

Here you can find all official time zone codes.
