Can I set Reminders to use "local time"?

    I have read and read, I don't think this is possible, but I am hoping you can help me with a solution if it is!

    I use the Mac Reminders app. I have a number of reminders that I want to be reminded of at different times of the day. I also travel to different time zones, but if I set a reminder for 8 AM in NY, I want the reminder to remind me at 8 AM even if I am in LA, or Dallas, or Paris.

    This doesn't seem possible, it always seems to use local time zones to adjust the reminders. True?

    Not that I know of.

    To sorta get around this, for repeating Reminders, I mark as completed and then unmark it. Now you have a standalone instance of the Reminder, and can adjust the time accordingly.

    Drastic solution: Set your reminders to use GMT. Of course you'll then have to figure the time difference. :eek: Seriously, I don't know of a simple way either.

    Can probably also automate, if one has an iOS device: Shortcuts.
