Any update on this ?
The time zone displayed on the Event is based on the Event creators time zone setting in their preferences. The time displayed for others viewing the Event will be adjusted to match that user's time zone preference setting.
HI Rajika kumari ,,
Thank you for your question. The times for an event will adjust to the user's locale who is viewing the event. When a user selects a locale for their preferences, time-based events will adjust and reflect the timezone according to the locale of the user. Therefore, you will not need to adjust the time of the event for the users located in a different timezone.
However, if you are creating an event for a time zone other than our own like for an annual conference with customers who are global, the easiest way around this is to just allow the event time to be independent of the user's time values. That way, anyone, anywhere, can set the time zone correctly. And, the users will see the time in their own local time zone.
How do we allow the event to be independent of the users' time zone values?

AFIAK and unfortunately for various reasons, Jive does not take into account the browser's local time zone. Unless the user sets their personal jive preference to a local timezone, the global-jive default timezone will apply and be shown on Jive Events/Calendar.
Although not ideal, we train folks to set their timezone as a new user, and I also suggest that Jive event creators place the time and timezone in the event title to avoid errors.
Good news, "Add to calendar's” ics file does reflect the correct timezone (provided that the creator set their's properly ;) )
