I'm trying to manage multiple projects with teams in 3-4 different time zones and it's doing my head in. I'm pretty sure we have looked at literally every online scheduling tool and there doesn't seem to be one that does the trick so I'm just wondering if we've missed something obvious or if perhaps we're going about this all wrong.
A perfect solution would be something so simple - A calendar or list where you can input milestones under a master time zone, but then there would be some sort of view toggle that would allow you to view and edit in other time zones to ensure that we aren't scheduling things out of hours or on public holidays etc.
There are a million online Gantt solutions out there that look great on the surface, but most fall short becuase they only accept milestones for a specific date, rather than a time on that date. On the flip side, even something really robust like Asana or MS Project for example, only allow for a single time zone that is set automatically.
We considered using a local solution, i.e, giving each project it's own Google Calendar and then using a local calendar app like Busycal which allows for easy toggling, but it's a very ham-fisted solution and not really a PM tool as such and hard to share to third parties like our clients.
Are we chasing a unicorn here, or missing something totally obvious or niche? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
