Proper method for dealing with Time Zones while traveling (Outlook, Blackberry, etc)

Hi Experts,

We have never had to deal with users traveling to different time zones.  That is changing now.  All of our users use Outlook and sync to their smartphones (most are Blackberry).  Is the proper method just to manually change the TIME ZONE on the Windows clock and Blackberry, and change it back once we return?

It seems like a simple enough question, but we just want to make sure there won't be any problems with syncing, Outlook appointments, etc and that all devices get along.  We also have scheduled tasks to worry about (Syncback Backup jobs, etc).  

Thanks!

I do not think there is a way for the BlackBerry to automatically change the time zone. The calendar won't change all your appointments unless you want it to by manually changing the time zone.

You may argue that other "normal" phones do.. then why not a BB. BB has not been designed in that fashion.
