Calendar export from Local Units website

Postby bibnib-p40 » Thu Jan 15, 2009 2:40 pm

Hi,

Would love to receive some suggestions for a workaround to this problem.

When I export our stake calendar from the local units website (http://www.lds.org/units) and import it into a Google calendar, the time of events is incorrect.

The issue appears to be with timezones. My Google calendar is set to the correct timezone.

I've emailed support about this and they have responded that there's no fix for the problem right now.

Here's what I found in the Google calendar help: http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=37834

It would really help to be able to import our stake calendar into my Google calendar. Any suggestions on a workaround?

Thanks,

Ian

Perhaps the thread Times wrong after iCal Import will offer some ideas.
