I need greater access to working with TimeZones, UTCs, scheduled events as stated in the DateTime Handling FAQ.
I would like to plan an event at the start of office hours in a different time zone. How would I do this? You can do this by parsing your time string (for example: 2013-01-01 09:00:00) with a certain format and time zone set, using Java actions. The DateTimeLibrary App Store module also provides this functionality. It works in the same way as parseDateTime at Parse and format date function calls but has an additional parameter for a time zone.
You are looking I think for this function in the Community commons: ParseDateTimeWithTimezone
