Recurring event stretches

Postby slouw » Sun Mar 26, 2017 5:55 pm

Hi There
I have a recurring event which has changed it's end date/time.
This has happenned before and I have captured the problem this time.
The length should be 65 hours not 89.
Image

I notice in a past iteration of the recurring event it displays correctly in the month view and it shows the original correct duration (65 hours)
Note in the recurrence paragraph it shows the wrong duration 89 hours.
Image

I have opened the series and saved again no change.
Below is what the series looks like when opened.
Note incorrect duration
Image

When I change the duration from 89hr to 65hrs and save this corrects the problem.

Appreciate any help
slouw

Hi slouw, I apologize for the problem. I'm not sure why the recurring event duration is changing. Is your calendar synced with something external to VueMinder? If so, there might be a bug in how multi-day recurring events are synced when they are not marked as "all day". Can you let me know what your calendar is synced with, if anything?

Yes with local Outlook 2010 application.
Running Win7
I have had other issues with events being lost wholesale (we think related to syncing) which I mailed you directly about.
That has happenned again as well.
My local Outlook is connected up to outlook.com and I know Vueminder syncing to outlook.com is on your agenda.
Is that being actively pursued now?
Thanks for reply....

Hi slouw, thank you for the information. I'll investigate further. Direct syncing with Outlook.com is still on my list of planned improvements but I'm currently working on some other improvements.

Happenned again.
I changed series to all day events.
Results:
Those in the past corrected.
Those current (current time is in the middle of one of these events) remianed stretched.
Correcting the current individual event fixed it and the one future event after.
Series ends later in April once that is done I will create a new one All day event only and see if that helps.
Any other suggested workarounds appreciated
