iCal Merge events on wrong date
I am experiencing a weird problem with a merged calendar. I have entered the following url on the icalendar merge page:

http://ical-cdn.teamsnap.com/team_schedule/0a93ffb0-8b22-0134-a254-7a163ed5e144.ics

This calendar is being imported from teamsnap.com. The "training" events are importing just fine, but the games do not show a start time, and they are showing up on the day following the scheduled day.

Re: iCal Merge events on wrong date
I tried importing the url to Google Calendar and the events are all correct, so I suspect that there is a bug in Localendar.

Re: iCal Merge events on wrong date
I notice the iCal feed you are importing is in Pacific Time, and your calendar is set (under Options->General) to Mountain Time.

What timezone is your Google calendar set to?

On the missing hour/wrong day item:
Alas, not everyone follows the iCal specification correctly (not even Google - though we generally do whatever they do since that's what most people expect wink )

Some of your event dates were being interpreted as "full day" events because of what they look like in the ical feed, and not events that start at a particular time w/ no end time (which is what I think the author intended)

We've made a change so these should be handled in the same way as Google - unless one of these starts at midnight; then it will still be treated as All Day.

Re: iCal Merge events on wrong date
I have no doubt that the ical feed is not quite what the programmer intended since it apparently does not follow the rfc. The change you made seems to have worked. Thanks for your effort.
