Calendar Invite Wrong Time Zone RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I receive a calendar event with Office 365 in my Outlook Calendar the invite is coming in the time zone: (UTC) Monrovia, Reykjavik.   This was a non-issue before exchange and Outlook 2013.  The calendar invite even states that the user (who's machine is in the same time zone-EDT) that this user has sent it from this time zone: (UTC) Monrovia, Reykjavik.  I've checked everything and all of my settings are EDT.  The invite is correct on my IPhone and IPad calendars, but on my Surface Pro 3, with Windows 8.1 and Outlook 2013, it is incorrect.    I need HELP!  Thank you!

  • In my long experience problems with times in Exchange and Outlook calendars have always been caused by incorrectly set time, time zone, or DST setting on either the client machines or servers, missing DST patches, or localities with nonstandard or recently changed DST practices.  I have yet to learn of any exception to this rule.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I understand that calendar in Outlook 2013 display wrong time zone, however iPhone and iPad works.

    Please logon OWA and check whether it’s right. If it’s correct, please try to re-create an outlook profile for test.

    Additional, we can change time zone to match your current geographic location, more details please refer to:

  • Hi Donna,

    please check if no additional Calendar is enabled in Outlook.

    In Outlook go to file - options - calendar and check if Alternate Calendar is enabled.
