Skype for Business Response Group Timezone and Languages

Due to my work on Call Flow Manager for Skype for Business, fellow MVP Greig Sheridan asked whether I had a reference to the valid time zones used by the Lync and Skype for Business Response Group Service. Turns out I did, so I thought I would share it with the world as I remember how hard the information was to source myself.

You can use the PowerShell references in your commands when creating and updating Response Group Workflows e.g:
