I'm such a big dumbass causing a bad second-impression in my new job: missed the standup because I'm a retard at reading how Outlook shows you the time of a meeting when you accept it, the time shown is the time of the inviter not your local time! And that day-1 training? Had to be completed by yesterday. Had to message the higher up I knew and was available, own my shit and apologize. Received a call from the outsourcing company's boss as he got notify from HR of my faux pas with the training.

I need to do better...

    Sounds tough. 10 hail Mary's and some attention to detail as absolution.

    Something wrong on the setup here, outlook should adjust the time to your local time. I have meetings with India, US est and US pst, if the times stayed local to the sender, I'd be totally fucked

    @nibor when I receive the invite and was viewing it, the time of the meeting was "10 am" which match what I was told about it. Today when I woke up and turned on the laptop, Outlook alerted me of the "overdue" meeting; I was speechless. After checking the configuration it seems that the time of all following meetings are correctly matching my local time.

    My outlook shows the time in my local timezone and then the original timezone in brackets. If they're different. If it's a setting it would've been configured by IT when they set up my comp
