Calendar oddities?

Postby dannykos » Tue Dec 21, 2010 3:47 pm

Tried searching the new forums, but getting 0 results - so apologies if this is already covered somewhere.

Having imported our 2011 ward calendar from google into the new church calendar - and begun to disseminate the events through the correct sub-calendars, there is a problem with events spread over a number of days. The start date has been retained correctly, but the end date is totally messed up! It should be ending on 13th March 2011 - but when I enter that, the date it actually runs to is 13th Feb 2012!?

I've tried deleting and recreating the event in the new calendar - but to no avail.

I'm unable to duplicate this problem. Can you supply more details as to what kind of recurring event it is (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) and how often it repeats? Is it an all-day event or at some time?

Sorry - i'm trying to block out the 2 week temple shutdown - using an all-day event running from 28th Feb - 13th March. Recurring wasn't really the correct term to use, sorry.

I've added a screengrab to the previous post - showing that the dates are correct, but it lists a conflict on Dec 25th 2011?!

Thanks for the clarification. I see what you mean, now, and it does appear to be a bug. I haven't tested it extensively, but as near as I can tell, it is a problem with any event that spans a month end. It moves the end date to be 11 months later than the date that was entered.

thanks for the reply - I guess I'll be shelving the rollout until the end of Q1 just to be on the safe side. If I can get confused over it - many of my members will totally lose the plot!
