Hi

 

 

 

Click to see full size

 

 

 

Hopefully that will show you what the issue is, basically all my holidays are showing a day early as in Good Friday is on Thursday etc

 

My first thought was that somewhere my computer is set to the US so my NZ holidays will appear the day before because of the time difference

 

 

 

Even though my calender is correctly on NZ time

 

 

 

any help would be appreciated 

 

Thanks

I tried Calendar for the first time and it is doing the same for me. They've just been input incorrectly as other holidays are correct: Anzac Day, Queens Birthday, etc

Cheers, I just looked in the Windows feedback app and yep it seems to be affecting loads of people, so I don't feel so stupid now

Still? IIRC the last time I've used their calendar was 2013 and it was also showing the wrong dates on some holidays as well, and the last I checked if this was already corrected was just December last year, when Christmas Eve was on 23rd, Christmas was on 24th and Boxing day was on the 25th.

Seems to be wrong in the current build but correct in the version that comes with the latest Windows Insider build (14295)

There is/was an issue where whole day events show a day early, it's a right PITA.

As a test, what happens if you drop an all day event for today into outlook.com and then view it in calendar?

I believe I posted a similar issue to this about a year ago.

 

From memory the issue is that Outlook [might have] been referring to the date/time as a UTC date which brings it forwards 12 hours - there were two API calls, something like toLocalTime and toUTCTime, when using the latter I was able to replicate the issue.

 

The fix for me has been to use an online calendar (I use Exchange Online) which does not seem to be affected by the issue.
