      1. Identify server time (ex: Nightly is EST)
      2. Log in as instructor and change account preference time zone to something else (ex: Asia/Shanghai)
      3. Create Signup tool
      4. Add a meeting. Note that date/time picker inserts current server time by default
      5. Set meeting start/end to desired times and Next
      6. Meeting Summary page will show the time you entered was server time and was then converted to local time of user's account time zone preference and appended with time zone abbreviation.

      Ex: Server set in EST and user set to Asia/Shangai. If it is 8am EST when user creates meeting, the user will see 8am in date/time picker. If user changes to 9am and saves, on Meeting Summary page it will show "10pm CST". (CST being China Standard Time)

      Description

      When instructor is creating a meeting, the date/time picker defaults to show server time; not local time based on user's account preference. If instructor was to change the date/time picker to their desired start/end, they would do so thinking they are setting to user-preferred time. On save, they would see what they entered was actually server time and the conversion to local time with time abbreviation (SAK-42705)

      This means users outside of server time must do time conversion themselves to server time and enter that conversion in date/time picker without any reference on the page to do this conversion.
