My troop displays their Scoutbook Calendar on their Troop Web Page: it makes it easier for parents to know when events are, as most never look in Scoutbook. I recently changed the .ics URL from the Scoutbook Calendar URL to the IA Calendar and despite having the correct time zone the URL populates dates in UTC - so our 6:30PM meeting displays at 1130PM. This basically renders it useless. I have gone back to the .ics for Scoutbook to avoid confusion.
@ChristopherCamacho - are you looking at it when in edit mode ? Or from the website itself. Ours shows correctly
That is from our website with the subscription linked to our g-cal
I am looking at it from our website. Troop230.net. I had to switch it back to using Scoutbook ics link so parents didn’t get confused.
@ChristopherCamacho - well it is pulling from the same database.
Could you try subscribing to the IA calendar from your personal device and see if it displays correctly?
Displays fine on an iOS device.
@ChristopherCamacho - ok… that brings us to how the calendar is inserted into the website.
@ChristopherCamacho - was this what you were following:
The IA calendar would have to be linked to the google public calendar and a google calendar when in edit more on a website will show times in UTC… I know because that is what I see when I edit our unit websites.
This shows the issue is likely with the website and how it is determining timezone.
