Sharing calendars with Rainlender

Postby gjbth » Tue Jul 28, 2009 2:01 pm

I have to share calendars with another calendar program called Rainlendar.

The calendars are published in .ics format.

If I set an event for a particular day, say 28/07/2009 and then set it as an all day event.

Rainlendar displays the event as 27/07/2009 i.e one day before the event.

If I uncheck all day event in Vueminder, Rainlendar correctly updates the event as 28/07/2009.

Could be that this a problem with Rainlendar though.

Best Regards

I've tried this myself, to see if I could get the same behavior, but I'm seeing all-day events published from VueMinder displaying on the correct date in Rainlendar. I'm testing with Rainlendar Pro v2.5 (b72).

Could you create a new calendar, define a single all-day event, publish the calendar to an ICS file, and then email the ICS file to me (support@vuesoftsite.com)? I'll try importing it into Rainlendar to see if I can duplicate the behavior you're seeing. I'll also visually inspect the contents of ICS file to see if there's anything weird going on with the date that VueMinder is exporting.

I'm using 2.5 b81. I will install the 2.5 b72 version and see if I get the same results as yourself.

If this works I'll dump the b81 version and let Rainy know about the bug in his software.

Many thanks

I have just tried with version b72 and still get the wrong date in Rainlendar.


I have emailed a test .ics file for you to try.
I have set an event for 07/07/2009 in Vueminder (all day event) it displays as 06/07/2009 in Rainlendar.

Thanks again

I have found that the date change happens if I have the event set to 'all day event' and the option to 'convert event times to universal time (UTC)' checked.

If both these are selected the dates display incorrectly in Rainlendar, if I leave unchecked either one of these, the dates display correctly.

Best Regards

A new version (5.1.0) has been released that I believe will fix this. Please let me know if it doesn't. Thanks!

Hello Dan,

The new version seems to have corrected this. I'll keep an eye on it for a while and let you know if it stops working.

Thank you again for the amazing customer service
