TOPIC: Google calendar: Repeating events and DST

Google calendar: Repeating events and DST 3 Years ago  
The behavior of Daylight Savings Time for repeated events in Google calendars appears to be different between events created in Rainlendar and events created in Google Calendar. For example:

Create event in Google Calendar starting at Monday Oct 24 9am-10am repeating weekly until Monday Nov 28.
Observed result: Events appear at 9am-10am every Monday from start to end dates both in Google Calendar and in Rainlendar.

Now try the same thing but create the event in Rainlendar rather than Google Calendar.
Observed result: Events appear correctly in Rainlendar every week, but in Google Calendar, for every week after the Daylight Savings Time change, the event is moved up an hour to 8am-9am.

Running v2.9 (b111) 32-bit on Windows.

That happens because Rainlendar sends the events in UTC to Google so the timezone and DST information isn't included. Correcting this would require full timezone support to Rainlendar and even though it is in my backlog it requires a lot of work so implementing the feature will take a while.

you are not alone. I had reported this issue as well . unfortunately it was a deal breaker for me. I need a calendar I can rely on so I went with desktop icalendar. In my opinion, it is not as nice as rainldar was , but it is more reliable when adding events of any kind.

There have been improvements to the time zone handling in Rainlendar. I don't know what exactly the problem was that you were having so I can't tell if it is solved or not.
