Hello! I am a new user and a first time poster here, so please let me know if this is better addressed in another manner or somewhere else. However, I just found this discord discussion in trying to help our local Cub Scout Pack troubleshoot a new issue that has recently popped up in the way (incorrect time offset) that display on our pack’s website calendar (via GoDaddy – Events), which the data comes from the following Scoutbook iCal/ICS link (note that this is not my area of expertise, so please pardon any incorrect nomenclature):
Here are the correct dates/times (mountain time zone) at the Scoutbook Calendar source:
Everything with this has worked PERFECTLY until about a week ago (?), when we noticed that the times on the GoDaddy website now appear to be displaying at ZULU (rather than Mountain). In my hours of research, I just found this discussion board and it looks like there may be a lot of ‘tweaking’ going on with the Scoutbook Calendar functionality that could have affected this, most recently:
So, for example, the upcoming 6 pm 2/6 Bounce Empire Fundraiser is now showing on the website as 1 am on 2/7 (which is the +7 conversion from Mountain Time Zone to Zulu):
Here is what our pack website now (incorrectly) shows:
I know very little about how iCal/ICS subscribed calendars work, but from what I can tell in the .ICS file (link: https://api.scouting.org/advancements/events/calendar/120854), it DOES properly include the time zone information, but for some reason, GoDaddy is no longer honoring this and using Z instead? Or, some of the recent Scoutbook calendar changes are causing the problem? The calendar link/file of course displays CORRECTLY when you try to add/import it into anything like Outlook, Google, IOS Calendar, etc. (because they are all smart enough to adjust to the user time zone?), but from everything I can tell, GD has no way to ‘apply’ a time zone to a website (unless maybe I could find where they have the code and then manually modify that?).
Text Excerpt from the Attached ICS Calendar Code for 2/6 Event:
SUMMARY:Bounce Empire Private Fundraiser Event for Black Rock Elementary School
LOCATION:Bounce Empire, 1380 S. Public Road, Lafayette, Colorado 80026
In any event, I have racked my brain and am hopeful that this is the correct place to get some knowledgeable assistance. Thank you in advance and let me know if there is any additional information I can provide to be helpful.
