Managing time zones when creating a new event/meeting

Accounts & Contacts

When creating a New Event/Meeting that syncs with the calendar, Salesforce should allow the user to put in the time zone when scheduling. This feature would eliminate the confusion for members trying to coordinate meetings with an outside travelling sales reps. Example: I am living in DC and schedule meetings in Houston for CST. The setting on my Salesforce account is for EST, which should be fine as long my outside rep is set on EST also. The problem occurs when the outside rep tries to sync the meeting times through Outlook on his phone (since most SmartPhones don't support the Salesforce calendar) and meetings are scheduled in Houston, Miami, and Los Angeles (i.e. different time zones). Allowing the user to create New Events with time zone distinctions would eliminate this annoyance/confusion and allow for more streamlined integration with mobile devices and Microsoft software.
