How can I schedule an event with people in different time zones?

Doodle now automatically sets the correct time-zone for each of your participants.   

During step 2 of poll creation you first select the dates, and then the time options. When you click 'add times' on the right side of the page you'll see your time zone automatically appear just below. This time zone is the 'poll time zone.'  

When your participants open the poll link they'll see the time zone of the poll just under the title. This is the 'display time zone.' Your time options will be displayed corresponding to where your participants are located (according to their IP address or Doodle account setting).
If you remove the poll time zone when you set up the poll (click the time zone and then 'remove'), the poll is set up with certain times and shows this time for everyone. It does not matter where someone opens the poll. It will always show the same times.

Keep in mind that this setting can’t be turned on or off after you create the poll. If you’ve already created the poll, you’ll have to duplicate it and then enable this setting in step 2, or create a new poll.
