I think RusselHltn has the critical piece there. The TZ needs to be defined in the ICS file. Is that included in your file?

I will give that a try. All of my timed events are in GMT yyyymmddThhmmssZ format - they are uploading fine. It is only the all-day events that import is attempting to convert to timed events.

Once again, going to the old system's export, here's a sample of a all-day event:

Code: Select all

CATEGORIES:Stake Event
DTSTAMP:20110107T111438Z

END:VEVENT

Still no luck. When I upload the following file, STAKE CONFERENCE appears on January 20 at 11:00pm.

For all day events with NO location - members using the LDS Tools app - see the event as being a "All Day Saturday" event instead of an "All Day Sunday" event.

Two facts that may be relevant
- our stake is in Germany
- only locations have a timezone designation (at least from what the user can see)
