iCal feed

Post by BadElbow » September 1st, 2013, 5:35 pm

Not sure if this is an issue on my side or not but thought I would bring it up.

The iCal feed doesn't seem to take into account time zone. There doesn't seem to be a way for me to change it on my end and I am not sure if there is something in the feed that cam be fixed to do so.

I just know I will look at the calendar and think I have an hour till game time when in realty the game has already started.

Thanks for the help. (using outlook)

That isn't something on our end. Outlook should be adjusting it.

Hmm. That's what I thought but it doesn't seem to work. I have tried both Outlook 2007 and Outlook.com.

Disregarding timezone is a Microsoft feature.

That's what I was afraid of. Looks like I will be doing in manually.

Also a Utah feature.

It looks like the Outlook.com calendar has some serious issues with timezones. I've done some research and some have stated that if you include a timezone in each event rather than a Feed specific timezone then it works better...unfortunately there is no way to test it since Outlook.com doesn't give you a way to refresh the feed. I just added the feed to a new Outlook account and it says that it's using a feed that it cached on Sunday (apparently from another user since this account didn't even exist then).

I ended up going to the Aggies ESPN page and subscribed to their calendar and all seems to be working.
