Outlook 2010 - Calendar appointments/meetings time zone issue
Posted on 2012-03-14
Outlook 2010 not converting the times correctly when accepting appointments from different time zones.
This is what our end user in EST time zone sent in for assistance:
Subject: Fw: Wanted to confirm timing for Thursdays call - it's for 10am ET.
This is the second time that Outlook has not converted a meeting plan in Central time correctly to eastern time (both before and after daylight savings time); the first time made me late for a very important meeting. Can you please check into why this is happening and get it fixed.
This what the meeting organizer sent from CST time zone:
Subject: Wanted to confirm timing for Thursdays call - it's for 10am ET.
Just wanting to make sure you had the timing correct, when I received your acceptance it came through as 7-8am.
Timing: 9-10am CT / 10-11am ET
Users work for two different companies but both use Outlook 2010.
Have done some research but not a defitive fix.
