sharepoint calendar not working correctly

Posted on 2015-01-08
Last Modified: 2015-03-03
I am using the built in sharepoint that comes with windows server 2008 R2 and a user found a glitch.

So I have 3 calendar examples in the image, two of them are correct because the user manually changed them individually.
So for May 2015, on the calendar, it shows that the meeting is from 2 pm to 2:30 pm.  If you actually open the meeting, it's correct, it's from 2 pm to 3:30 pm.

Any reoccuring meeting that is created does not show correctly on the calendar portion.  How do I fix this?

If you are currently in Standard Time and the timezone in your meeting changes from ST to Daylight Saving Time (DST) it will be 1 hour off as the meetings time is set to UTC time i.e. utc-5 is standard utc-6 is daylight saving, if you go forward in the calendar to when your timezone switches back to Standard Time it will be back to the time set before daylight saving kicked in

I'm lost, how do I just fix this, I'm not sure what setting that is.  I'm PST time zone, so all meetings should be in PST.

There is nothing to fix. 3 PM PDT is 2 PM PST .. if you are currently in standard time it will show 1 hour later, when you go to PDT it will show 2PM, go forward in your calendar to November and it will show 2PM only when your timezone is in standard time and the event occurs when you will be in Daylight Time,  it will  appear to be off by 1 hour.

2PM PST is UTC - 8 = 10PM UTC
3PM PDT is UTC - 7= 10PM UTC

I see what you're saying, but the problem is, even for January and February, it did the same thing, it was off and it was during the same time zone, or at least the hour change didn't take place yet.

Am I missing something?

is the timezone on the server and the clients set correctly and also to change when daylight saving starts/ends

Yes, the timezone on both the clients and server is the same.  They are on the same domain.

But you see, why would the correct  time be inside the meeting info if you open it up, but not correct when it's displayed on the calendar in the monthly view?

So I did what you suggested and I went to november 2015, DST ents on November 1st,  the meeting is on November 3rd, and it's still incorrect, it shows from 2 to 2:30 pm.  I even looked on December's calendar and it's still incorrect.

So the issue is not with PDT and PST.
