Calendar Conversion from Outlook to Notes did not work properly

Posted on 2009-05-05
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
I converted an Outlook calendar to Notes but when I open it some times are off. For example, if I have a meeting for several days, it puts the first day correct, but it adds an extra day at the end. If I have a reoccurring event, it is always 1 hour behind. If I have an appointment for a certain time in a day only, that is correct.
Does it make any sense? Does anyone know what can be wrong?

What conversion tool did you use to import the appointments?

Also, please, tell us your server release/client release, etc...

ALso, there could be issues with Time zones and Daylight Savings time.

I used Transend. Notes is 7.0.3 and Outlook 2003. I am guessing it has to do with DST but don't know how to o around it. What's funny is that appointments in January and February are fine, but starting in March they are all off.

That's clearly a DST problem that's handled differently in each client. Would it be possible to use a different transport vehicle, like a textfile, csv, or Excel, so you can adapt the dates more easily?

It is going to be messy. since all the DST's need to be properly updated and able to work nicely together.

I would contact transend about this.

I hope this helps !
