time zone issues with calendar in Evolution

Ratliff, John
I'm using Evolution with EWS to access my Exchange mailbox.

When I create a calendar event, I select the time, but when I go to
save it, it puts the time an hour later.

I am in the US Eastern timezone (UTC-4, UTC-5 when not in daylight
savings).

I've seen this behavior on Arch Linux, Fedora, and Ubuntu, and my time
zone is set correctly on all of those platforms.

Any ideas why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks.

Hello John

There is a mishap between evolution and Exchange when in DST. Evolution
seems to provide the datetime with DST applied but Exchange interpret it
as provided without it:
https://mail.gnome.org/archives/evolution-list/2018-May/msg00017.html

Could you share which is the most recent version where you verified that
it was failing?

Best regards

My laptop is running Evolution 3.28.2 from debian testing repo. It
still exhibits the issue.

3.28.3 on Fedora 28 ans I also have this issue a lot.  I found that if I change my Time zone from America/Indiana/Indianapolis to America/New_York, it works fine.

        Hi,
no promises, but maybe this is addressed with (3.28.4+):
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evolution-ews/issues/7

In case it will not be for you, would you (anyone in this thread or
even not in this thread) mind to file a new bug at:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evolution-ews/issues/new
and write there very detailed steps with observations, please?

That might be really detailed steps, like what server version is in
use, what time zone is setup on the server and in Evolution, what event
with what time zone and at what date/time is created in Evolution and
where it is shown in OWA of the server, or in Outlook, or another
instance of Evolution, or even in the Evolution which created it, in
case the save moves the event immediately. And also how the event was
created. The date/time really precisely, like on 2018-03-21 at 10:00AM,
because I'm pretty sure the actual time matters. Having a log with the
created event would be also a huge plus, but that can wait for now.

All those details are required, because it seemed to work for me, but
it didn't in certain cases, like with the above issue. Imagine I'm
dumb, I'd need almost click-by-click reproducer, otherwise I can miss
it again.

        Thanks and bye,
        Milan
