eM Client uses your computer’s date and time settings by default, or those you specify when creating the event if it is different. Unfortunately, if the calendar is synced with an online provider, in some instances that event data can be changed during the sync when the provider and this application are not fully compatible.
If you are syncing your calendar, who is the provider?
Gary, think i have the same issue. However, in my case, it has to do with automated booking where I receive an ics invite calendar file. The online system confirms 9 kl, but when I open up the ics file in emclient it always shows minus 2 hours. Same principle with Zoom scheduling. Since I live in an area where it is UTC + 1 hour.
I do many automated bookings with emclient, and it is very annoying that the client always sets the time 2 hours back. I am pretty sure it has to do with the default UTC setting. How do I change the setting to UTC +1 hour.
And yes my system etc show all the correct time.
Hello, I have the same problem : opening ICS files converts time to UTC.
For an event set at 3 PM, it displays 1 PM UTC, although my system is set to UTC +1 (?).
BUT, writing these lines, if I save as is, the time displayed in the calendar is the good time.
So it is just a little bit disturbing to see a wrong date in the form and should be changed, IMHO.
It should be displayed 3PM UTC+1 or something like that.
eM Client is not converting anything when you edit the event or open an ics file. That is the actual time and timezone in the event. It comes either from your calendar server, or the original ics.
That is why in the calendar preview, we adjust that automatically for your local time zone, so you see all events correctly adjusted for whatever timezone you are in. And if you move to another timezone, it will adjust automatically.
The event from where the ics comes is a Google Calendar event.
It says inside the email : 3pm CET, which is the actual time I’m expecting to see.
But when I open the ICS file with EMClient, it says 1pm UTC(Coordinated Universal Time).
I didn’t mean it converts anything, but more that it displays a time that is not legible by a human without a conversion.
Have you tried it by yourself with a Google Calendar Event ?
I’m not sure to understand what you are saying…
I send you 2 images (the second one will be in the next post as I’m limited). One is in the ICS opened by EMClient (the one in this post), and the other one is inside the email (next post).
Whan I see 12:30 UTC in the ICS file, I don’t imagine it will be 2:30pm inside my calendar. I would have prefered to see 2:30pm or something coherent, exactly as it is inside the email.
Do you get my point ?
That is not an ICS file. That is just some text in an email. The actual ICS says UTC, so that is what we show in the event details if you edit it. But in your calendar we do display it correctly adjusted for your selected timezone.
If you have a problem with the sender sending you an ICS in a different time zone, you will need to ask them to change that. But it may also be created like that by their server, so they have no control.
That is why we display it correctly adjusted for you in your calendar.
