If anyone is using Outlook and has NZ public holidays turned on for their calendar can you check and see if Labour day is showing up as being on Monday 29th of October this year and let me know please. Want to know if it is just my environment or everywhere. Thank :)

Edit - Outlook 2003.

ok thanks for checking guys. Kind of a moot point now that it has past but still have people logging calls about it. Maybe they want next Monday off as well :)

Outlook 2013 shows the correct date 22nd October. Outlook 2010 also shows the correct date in my work environment. It will be an Exchange setup issue. My work mate at old job on Exchange 2010/Outlook 2010 also had date showing as 29th October.




Do whatever you want to do man.

billgates: Outlook 2013 shows the correct date 22nd October. Outlook 2010 also shows the correct date in my work environment. It will be an Exchange setup issue. My work mate at old job on Exchange 2010/Outlook 2010 also had date showing as 29th October.


Not an Exchange set up issue as I'm not using Exchange.

Check File, Options, Calendar, Add Holidays in the Outlook client. If you have the NZ holidays active (which you most likely will, I think Outlook picks it up from your system locale settings) you will have the wrong Labour Day date - I think the algorithm that it uses hit a hiccup.
