In part one of this series, we covered how to leverage some of the settings from the user’s profile in Salesforce to control the locale settings in angularJS. In this post, we will build off that initial example and extend it to cover time zone conversions. This will enable us to see all the data presented to the logged in user in that user’s time zone. This example could be further extended to allow the logged in user to see the data presented in another user’s time zone. An example of this is if an activity, task, or event needs to be assigned to a user in a different time zone, it is created in their time zone, not the time zone of who has created the activity. As long as the correct time zone is pulled from their profile, the new task is created in their time zone using the techniques outlined below.
