So I’ve read through the forum. I’m pretty sure I understand how date storage works.
If user A in Los Angeles, is booking with user B in New York, based on B’s availability. (a 3 hour forward difference)
and i want to create an event that they would both see, how do i save that event? who’s time do i save it with. the booker or the person being booked with or is this the magic?
the time being saved in UTC and only be formatted to look like 1 or another time on my computer.
so if I’m in Detroit and i create an event with a 9:30 start time (in my time) which is a 6:30 am slot in Los Angeles, will the person in LA see that event as 6:30.
here’s an image to help illustrate what i’m talking about
the idea would be that I can book from Detroit with someone in LA. then we can both view the event from 1 DB entry with which we are both associated.
feels like, and I’m only asking cause I cant test, that if I see LA availabilities in Detroit time, and save it in Detroit time that the person in LA would see the event correctly.
if I book a 9AM and save the event to the DB with a 9AM date/time without formatting anything the person in LA should just see the event as a 6AM event?
am I just over thinking it here?
my use case is:
I am creating 9-5 time slots for a person in Detroit that a person in Los Angeles has to view and book with.
I think i would display the POV but would save the POO. this carries the appropriate timestamp in reality (although they both say they are different timezones bubble thinks they’re both EDT)
