Hi All,

I am successfully sending entries to Outlook calendar, and they are showing at the correct time (08:00AM in this case), however the entry goes in with UTC time which needs changing by my staff.

On test output i get this;

originalStartTimeZone: UTC

originalEndTimeZone: UTC

and as for the date/time

startDateTime: 2022-07-15T22:00:00Z

endDateTime: 2022-07-15T22:00:00Z

 

Ideally these entries would be in AEST (GMT +1000) - I have added Z to the end of the date formatter to show +1000, however i still see the entry as UTC

 

What specifically is used to set originalStartTimeZone and originalEndTimeZone?

Oh bugger - Thanks for the update - I had some high hopes for using this to book our calendar entries - I hope this can get fixed up soon

Hey there, @RobF300! Thanks for reaching out.

Bad news bears here but I did some digging and it appears you’re running into a known bug with the Microsoft Outlook app where it’s essentially ignoring those dropdown fields. 😔

While I don’t have an ETA to give you on a fix for this, I did add you as an impacted user. We’ll be sure to email you once it has been been addressed and keep the topic updated.
