           Summary: Akademy volunteer app allows for easy confusion
                    between Fridays
           Product: www.kde.org

Screenshot of my volunteering schedule with ambiguous fridays.

For lack of any other better place, I'm filing this against the kde.org product
in the hopes it'll get assigned to the right web folks.

I signed up for some Akademy volunteer shifts this year using the
https://volunteers.akademy.kde.org/ app. When looking at the "my schedule"
page, it indeed shows my shifts, which is great and all, but in my great
excitement to get involved I didn't realize that my Friday shifts are meant for
/next/ Friday. All the times on the site are posted in UTC which works great
when you're attending in person. However, this year, it is a remote event and
I'm attending from PST which is many more timezones away than my early morning
pre-conference-coffee brain can reason about.

To help with better coordination in future remote events and prevent others
from mixing up their Fridays from the other side of the planet, the app should
throw in the numeric date. In this case it should say Friday, June 25th instead
of merely "Fri". If its not too much to ask, it'd be great to have times
displayed in the user's local timezone instead of always UTC, or at least make
it very clear the times displayed are in UTC.
