Calendar bug (time zone)

By Kymmie ·
The last time I checked Valentine's Day was just one day. I find this very strange that when you change Time zones on a computer all the "All day" events change from one day to a two day event. Is there a workaround for this?

The person using this computer connects to an Exchange Server in another city, that has a different time zone than the city he is in. He doesn't want to change the local time on his computer to an incorrect time zone.

Why can't Outlook keep the "all day" events consistent with the days they fall on regardless of time zone?

Calendar bug (time zone)

This is a known issue with Outlook. See Knowledge Base Article 197718 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;19771.

I don't know how much help Microsoft's workaround will be in your situation, but their solution is:

"To work around this problem, schedule the event for the beginning and end of your normal workday instead of choosing the All Day option, and then mark the event as needed (Free, Tentative, or Busy). Also, Microsoft recommends that you not create events that span over the midnight time frame unless your normal working hours include those times.

"NOTE: When you use this workaround, the top section of the calendar does not display the date of the event, but it does display the event as a single eventthat fills the hours for that workday."

Thanks. Oddly enough the Microsoft article you gave me excludes Outlook XP and Exchange 2000. Any ideas on that?
