Custom Link to Update Timezone

With all the traveling that they do, the salespeople at our company would like a custom link on the homepage to update their time zones.  Any guidance on how I'd tackle that request would be appreciated.
There is a field on the User table called TimeZoneSidKey. For me, it has the value "America/Los_Angeles". Should be pretty easy to write a custom link or hyperlink field that updates this field.

  • get the user id you're coming from
  • present the user with a dropdown of all the timezones
  • when they select one, write to the correct user object
