Individual custom availability for team Meetings links for international teams

The team calendar should allow every member to customized their available time slots. In another words have the option for default availbility to overwrite customized availbility. 

 

This is because if i am looking to implement a 24 hours meeting link (i.e Customized availability is set to all day). If one of my colleagues are seated in the States while I am seated in Singapore, their 12pm is my 12am.

 

However due to the customized availability overwriting the default availability ---> if my colleague is not available at 12pm and I did not block off myself at 12am in my Google calendar, it will identify me as available and have the option available for selection in my meeting link. This resulted in me having to block off every day when I am off work in my google calendar and it becomes really cluttered.

 

It will be helpful if we have a feature to block off the timing that we are off work.

This is very important. I have just made the same idea before seeing this one.

This is essential bing in the UK with a team 11 hours ahead in Australia.  Trying to schedule an email for later in the evening is a headache wondering if it will go when I wanted it, and updating my dashboard to get call stats for the day means i need to set a 2 day window every day, far from productive.

As a global company using Hubspot, we vote for individual time zone.

 

How long will the development take?

Can't stress how important it is to us. Tasks, sequences ... almost every sales activity is seriously affected.

It's an odd one, because tasks and activity in the timeline seemingly are already in your local time zone, yet you can't schedule an email and it hurts your brain to think about scheduling 11 hours ahead and it's the next day, then add the default delay of a day to it and suddenly your sending 2 days after and my mind just goes into meltdown.

Agree with this! Google Calendar work hours are great for not booking outside of the 9-5 hours, but we have sales covering certain portions of the day and it doesn't work great to have the big calendar blocks. I  have played around with creating a separate calendar for the HubSpot integration, but would be easier if it was all in one place.

I back this idea too - currently working across 3 time zones all in VERY different places across the globe and my brain hurts figuring out the time differences for our social posts so that they hit at the same time as the EDMs and the blog posts. Would be great to be able to assign timezones to users (would be great for teams, too but not if you re part of more than one team across various timezones - should the multiteam function every happen).

We are really (badly) surprised the lack of this feature, it's very problematic and extremely unpractical, we have our Sales team based in the Philippines, but also calling all over the world, and Marketing in France where we program social media post and blog, and it is complicating our day to day work in essence. This is an absolute necessary feature! 

this should also be indicated by the sales persons from Hubspot, certainly when they know the composition and different locations of your teams, (and we are subscribed to paying version of Marketing Hub.)

I can see this quite essential 'feature' - while working @ multinational organisations - was voted back in 2017 (!)

Dear Hubspot we have March 2019 ....

There are several other threads reg. 'time zones' here. May I ask what is the timeline for adding this crucial feature ???

It is really suuper weird to manage teams in EU and US with ..... one hubspot account. 

Task/meeetings/reporting .  Do I really need to add more  troublesome use cases ???

This is a crazy simple option that should be included we have customers across Europe and Australia so we would love to have the ability to base a workflow on a regional date and time and not the account level as this risks errors in send time and can make our data analysis look a bit odd.
