Dates and times can be relative to the timezone or independent of the user's timezone:
- Relative to timezone: A telephone conference scheduled by the Paris office at 4pm CET should show in the calendar of a New York colleague as 11am EDT - so they dial in at the same time.
- Independent of timezone: When the "Friday, end of day" deadline is reached for the Paris office (6pm CET), the New York office has still half a working day until they have to make the same deadline (1pm).
Dates and Times in NEXT
All times in NEXT are relative to the timezone. For example, a task scheduled with colleagues around the globe will take place at the same time - allowing them to connect in realtime.
Dates in NEXT are independent of the timezone. For example, if the Prototyping phase is schedule to be finished on 10 March, 2020, the phase would switch to "phase is late" 5h earlier in Paris than in New York.
