Exchange 2010 calendar issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've noticed an issue that arises when someone creates a multi-day calendar event in a shared public folder calendar and then invites multiple users.  What happens is that after the event is accepted, for example Friday 2PM through Monday 11AM, the accepted invite will appear on the invitees' calendar as an all-day event on Saturday and Sunday.  Things to note:

    All users are in the same time zone.

    All users use the same exchange server (2010, hosted), version of outlook (2007), and even operating system (Windows 7).

    All users have the same (within a few seconds) time set on their machines.

    All users have the exact same calendar time zone settings in Outlook.

    All users use Activesync with iPhones.

    When someone deselects the daylight savings time adjustment option in outlook, the event appears in the correct time.  But all-day events then span two days.  The article from Microsoft linked below details that issue.  Any way to resolve this?

  • Not to my knowledge. We recently tested this with several iPhones (5.01) on Exchange 2010 SP1 RU6.

    Issue 1.6 - Appointment exceeding 24 hours changed to multiple day All Day Event
    When an appointment item's duration exceeds 24 hours, but is not marked as an All Day Event, Exchange ActiveSync changes the item on the device to become a multi-day All Day Event. The next time that the device synchronizes with the mailbox, the change is propagated from the item on the device to the item on the Exchange Server 2010 mailbox.

    Solution

    Microsoft is investigating this issue. This problem can occur when using any ActiveSync device synchronizing with Exchange Server 2010.

  • Have you found that it will sometimes also change dates?  In my experience, it will truncate the event such that the first day is always removed.  It even adjusts the start time to the next day.
