I wanted to post the start and end of Daylight Savings Time on a stake calendar. I was able to create a recurring event for the first Sunday of November at 2:00 a.m. However, I am not able to create a recurring event for the second Sunday of March at 2:00 a.m. The Calendar really does not like 11 Mar 2012 at 2:00 a.m.

After tinkering with it for at least 30 minutes, I was able to create the recurring event starting 11 Mar 2012 at 2:00 a.m. However, when I return to the calendar view, it shows the event starting at 1:00 a.m. When I edit the event, it shows the event starting at 2:00 a.m. and stopping at 3:00 a.m.

There must be a bug in the Calendar software when it comes to DST, since it seems to think 11 Mar 2012 2:00 a.m. does not exist.

I have always just created an all-day event for DST changes. It is more visible, which is really the idea. Particularly in week view, a 2:00am event tends to be scrolled off and invisible.

Alan, that is a good suggestion. I'm just too digital. I just wish the error message was more clear. If 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, and 2:45 do not exist, I wish they would not appear on the drop-down list of times. That is probably more trouble than it is worth to prevent such a stupid user error.
Thanks,
Dana

Not that it matters, if the event was scheduled for 1:45 am on the first Sunday of November, which 1:45 am does it get assigned to? Time technically goes 0:59, 1:00, 1:01, … 1:59 (daylight), 1:00 (standard), 1:01 … 1:59, 2:00, 2:01 when we switch from daylight to standard.

In our stake, it would not really matter. Either one would get a followon assignment for an interview with priesthood leaders to find out what was happening in the building at that time of night. [grin]
