timezone String

The timezone which the scheduler will use to display the scheduler appointment dates. By default the current system timezone is used. This is an acceptable default when the scheduler widget is bound to local array of events. It is advisable to specify a timezone if the scheduler is bound to a remote service. That way all users would see the same dates and times no matter their configured system timezone.

The complete list of the supported timezones is available in the List of IANA time zones Wikipedia page.

The kendo.timezones.min.js file must be included in order to use timezones other than "Etc/UTC".

The timezone option will not affect events if the widget's data source is initialized separately. In this case set the schema.timezone option directly.

Example - set the timezone

<div id="scheduler"></div>
    date: new Date("2022/6/13"),
    timezone: "Etc/UTC",
    dataSource: {
        batch: true,
        transport: {
            read: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks",
                dataType: "jsonp"
            update: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/update",
                dataType: "jsonp"
            create: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/create",
                dataType: "jsonp"
            destroy: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/destroy",
                dataType: "jsonp"
            parameterMap: function(options, operation) {
                if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {
                    return {models: kendo.stringify(options.models)};
        schema: {
            model: {
                id: "ID",
                fields: {
                    ID: { type: "number" },
                    title: { from: "Title", defaultValue: "No title", validation: { required: true } },
                    start: { type: "date", from: "Start" },
                    end: { type: "date", from: "End" },
