Entering flights in iCal

Recommended Posts

I am flying from China to LA. Because of time zones I land before I take off. Anyone know any tricks besides making to entries to enter this into iCal. It's no big deal to do 2. I'm just curious.

ICal now has Timezone support, though you need to turn it on for some reason. Head to the preferences and you will find a checkbox at the top of the Advanced tab.


With this feature turned on you can change the timezone you view in the upper right corner of the iCal window. You then add the flight in Chinese time say, and yet it shows as your home timezone so you can see when you will arrive home. Any used timezones will automatically be added to the drop-down so you can view that time instead in the main iCal window.


It's really hard to describe this feature, but using it will make it plainly obvious. Just remember you have 2 controls - one in the main window, one in the edit pop-up.


Hope that makes sense eventually.
