Best Practices for Traveling over multiple time zones



Looking at other posts regarding time zone issues, I am concerned that I may have issues when traveling if I don't follow the proper process. It looks like there is an issue if i don't set all of my devices to the proper time zone.

My questions:

1) Does this mean that I need to change my MAC app on my desktop (which will not be traveling with me and I won't be using) before leaving on my trip? I can't imagine why this would be necessary if I am not using it until I return, but just want to make sure.

2) What about the settings in the WebApp (todoist.com)? Do I need to manually set the time zone in settings before leaving or when I arrive at the location? Or will Android update the Time Zone in the WebApp automatically when I tell it to change time zones upon arrival?

3) What about my iPad which I will be taking with me? Do I need to manually update the iPad upon arrival?

4) Is there a "Best Practices" document that addresses travel over multiple times zones?

The best practice is to accept any messages Todoist asks you while traveling. You do not need to change any web or desktop apps. On the device you are using in the new timezone, Todoist should come up and ask, Do you want to Change Timezones.

As long as you accept this, you should have no issues.
