Calendar shows up incorrectly on LDS Tools App

Postby ryanalder » Wed Feb 19, 2014 9:55 pm

On the LDS tools app it is showing events for days they are not scheduled. For example, I had entered "General Conference" on the Stake Calendar for the correct days but on the LDS tools calendar it shows up as being on Sat, Sun, and Monday. Same with Stake Conference and other events that are on the stake calendar for only one day

Are these all-day events? What time zone are you in? What platform are you on (iOS, Android, Windows)?

You may want to confirm that the calender shows up correctly on lds.org for other computers.

The events are all stored as "absolute" time and are adjusted for display in your current time zone. If either of your computers is in a incorrect time zone, there will be trouble. Mobile devices can be tricky as they may sync to a nearby time zone and not the "home" one.

Thank you so much for your advice. I went and changed one of the "absolute/all day" events to a timed event, re-synced, and it fixed the problem. Interestingly, this problem was only noticed on Android and not Apple devices. Of course it complicates things that we are in AZ where we do not observe DST. We definitely DO NOT need any more daylight during the summer.
Thank you, kindly, for your help. I will go through and add time frames where I can.

When you say timed, is it still midnight to midnight, or is it something less?
