When I write something like this: <2015-07-05 Sun 20:00 GMT+0>, and then try to edit it by pressing C-c ., Org removes the GMT+0 part. So, I think it's in a wrong format.

Note: I don't want to set my time to a different timezone. I want dates in a particular document to be in that timezone.

  • This sounds like a feature request. – Andrew Swann Jun 26 '15 at 11:51
  • @AndrewSwann oh, I thought there was a way... I think I saw Org dates with a timezone, just couldn't remember where. I'll write to the mailing list then to make sure. – wvxvw Jun 26 '15 at 13:30
  • @AndrewSwann yup, it seems like that's not possible now, and not planned in the near future, so, if you want to, you can make it an answer. – wvxvw Jun 26 '15 at 19:05
  • @wvxvw asked the devs too lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2015-06/msg00644.html – I don't think anything came of it unfortunately :( This would be a nice feature to have for e.g. when you live in a DST time zone, and have a recurring chat with someone in a non-DST time zone. – unhammer May 24 '17 at 11:06
  • (I ended up adding my event twice, using <%%(diary-float '(…) …)> to split up the months into DST vs non-DST) – unhammer May 24 '17 at 11:15

Time zone informatian is not currently part of date formats in org-mode and thus not part of the output from C-c .. Like C-c C-c on a timestamp any extraneous material in the date specification is removed and the week day is corrected to fit a given date, so partial junk input like

 13-6-3 Wed Xyz 13:00

is output as

 <2013-06-03 Mon 13:00>

a correct date, with matching day name.

It might be appropriate to make a feature request to the org-mode developers.
