Central Time Zone

The IFT14 mobile app is automatically set to the Central Time (CST) zone. While the sessions are already listed in Central Time, if you plan to manually input your own personal meetings/appointments into the schedule on the Mobile App Dashboard before you arrive onsite, you will need to manually reflect those meetings/appointments under CST (if you are in another time zone). Note that once you arrive in New Orleans, all scheduled appointments/meetings in the Outlook calendar will automatically convert to CST.
