Setting Local Time Zone, Calendar Import and Other Grenadine Customizations

Setting Your Local Time Zone

Once you are able to log into Virtual CoNZealand and can access "My Account," you will be able to set your time zone so, the programme item detail page will display both NZT & your local time.  Your local time zone will not appear on the day list of items or in the small item boxes.

On the main schedule pages, such as the list of items by day, only NZT time is displayed.

Once you have set your local time zone, although the local time is not displayed on the schedule pages, every programme item detail page shows both NZT and your local time.

To set your local time zone:

1. Log in to  CoNZealand, go to Schedule, select the "My Account" option to display this menu on the left-hand side of the page:

2. Select the "My Settings" option to display this screen:

3. To display your local time zone on programme item detail pages, click on the "Home time zone" field to list the time zones. Click on your time zone. If you are a panelist and want to display your schedule on the speakers page, slide the "My Schedule is Private" button to make it turn green and read "Show My Schedule."  If you are an attendee and you want your profile to show up on the Attendees list, slide the "Private Profile" button to make it turn green and read "Public Profile."

4. Click the Save button to save your settings.

The next time you redisplay a programme item detail page, your local time appears beneath NZT time.

Since the your time zone cannot be viewed on the schedule pages (unless you live in New Zealand), keep the Time Zone Converter handy.

The scroll list of time zones shows GMT +/- hours and a major city/country in that zone. If you live in the UK, and select "(GMT +00.00) London" as your local time zone, on the next detail programme item page you display, your local time appears as BST.

Calendar Import  

Yes, you can import your schedule, and your favorites to many calendars including Apple, Outlook and Google. 

To import calendar information:

1.  Log in and go to the Schedule area.

2.  Click on "My Schedule"

3. In the upper right hand corner, you will see the "Download These Events to to Your Calendar."  Grenadine creates  a "my_schedule.ics" file in your Downloads directory

4.  Open your calendar and you will see the CoNZealand items in your calendar in your time zone (if you have already set your local time zone).
