On a somewhat related note to this thread, is it at all possible to change the timezone settings of the LUWS? Our stake is located in Western Australia (GMT+8). Mucking around with the VTIMEZONE header in the exported iCal file is OK, but a little bit of a pain. Some of our users (including my stake president) could handle the basic export/import operations well enough, but would most likely balk a little at having to open the file in a text editor and modify or remove any of what they see there.
Unlike jbh001, I found that importing the unmodified iCal file into Google Calendars regarded the event times to be in MT (as you would expect with that timezone explicitly declared in the VTIMEZONE header), and so displayed the event times as 14 hours later in my timezone - a meeting originally scheduled for 7:30PM in the LUWS calendar appears as 9:30AM the following day in my Google calendar. My Google calendar settings are correct for my timezone.
I haven't yet tested the iCal or vCal import into Outlook to see if the behaviour there is any different.
The other thing I find, is that looking at our stake or ward calendars in the browser (Firefox 3.0.7), the current date still appears to be based on Mountain time. At the time of writing this post, it is Friday 20th March, at 3:50 PM in Perth, yet my LUWS calendar has the current day highlighted as Thursday 19th March. While this may not seem to be a big thing, it would be nice to see the right day selected for this timezone.
I am the stake website administrator, and I can't seem to find any type of settings that allow me to specify our timezone. Am I missing it somewhere, or is it a case of there isn't actually any way to do this? If the latter, I will add it as an enhancement request on the LUWS Suggestion and Bug Tracking wiki
Sorry for the long winded post, but if anyone has any additional insights into this, it would be most appreciated.
