On a recent project, I was working on importing a list of resources into CRM. We are using Dynamics CRM Service module default Resource entity, and for Resource entity TimeZone field is required.
There is a numeric value for each TimeZone, this numeric value is to be used instead of the string/text representation. As I was only dealing with WA, the TimeZone code is 225 – (GMT +08:00) Perth – W. Australia Standard Time.
Thank you to JoeCRM from PowerObjects for the very useful blog. Read more on his original blog.
