Malcolm,

I can reproduce the effect though ...
in a group with default user TZ set to UTC (I know that should not
matter) with my TZ set to UTC I create a calendar event with TZ UTC to
occur at 18:00 The event shows at 18:00 in the calendar but at 10:00
in /feed
Well now I'm confused. Testing this after the report in GMF I couldn't reproduce this. Now I can. I'm not sure what accounts for the change.

I did two things: I changed the group's Def Sub Setting to UTC, and I created two new events. Changing the group's Def Sub Setting to EST hasn't corrected the problem, so it seems not to be the issue. At least not in a direct way.

Possibly the act of creating new events caused something to get lodged (or dislodged) somewhere that causes my Feed page to now be shown in PST regardless of my Account's timezone?

I have the same problem when my account time zone is EST: the group's Upcoming Events list on the Feed page shows them in PST, whereas the Your Calendar page and the group's Calendar page shows them correctly in EST.

Another user account with PST timezone sees them in PST in all three places.

If I create an event with TZ set to AWST (8 hours ahead of UTC) for 18:00
it shows in my calendar (TZ UTC) correctly as 12:00
Ooops, I meant "it shows in my calendar (TZ UTC) correctly as 10:00"

 
but in /feed as 02:00
 
If I change my (account) TZ to AWST,
that same event shows in my calendar as 18:00 (AWST)
but still appears in /feed as 02:00
 
Therefore I conclude that events shown in /feed always display in PST and make no adjustment for my (account) TZ setting.

Mark,

Have a great holiday and I hope you will ‘return’ refreshed with lots of solutions.

Thanks for all you’ve done this, and past years.

Take care

You might be right. I've been unable to reproduce the bug, try as I might. I've made the change to this line of code, please let me know if it fixes the problem for you. You may need to do a force reload; hold down the shift key while clicking the browser refresh button.

Thanks Mark. I have tried refreshes galore (button and F5 with and without Shift and Ctrl) and also loaded it up in a browser that has had everything cleared and not visited groups.io before. That javascript change does appear not to have made any difference.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • BUGFIX: Hopefully fix the weird feed event time discrepancy bug.
  • APP: Work on a new version of the app utilizing the website templates instead of React Native.
  • INTERNAL: More work on converting templates to quicktemplate.
  • CHANGE: Added a breadcrumb bar to the group calendar page.
  • SYSADMIN: Upgraded the load balancer nodes to dedicated CPU instances.

The next #changelog will be published on Friday, January 8, 2021. Part of the time I will be on holiday, but the rest I will be focusing on the long lamented app. I had hired a firm to develop an app, as a separate program from the code that runs Groups.io. That meant that any change I wished to make to the website would also have to be made to the app. I was unhappy with how this was developing, so I spent some time recently figuring out how to develop an app using the code that already runs the Groups.io website. In this scenario, I would only have to make a change in one place, and I would not have to worry about the website and the app getting out of sync with different changes. I've figured out how to do this, and am now focused on finishing up the (new, new) app. As part of this, I may be tweaking some parts of the mobile website.

As is the case when I am on holiday, I will still be monitoring the site, but support email responses may be slower than normal.

Take care everyone, and happy holidays!

Mark

I agree that having a breadcrumb path at the top of each Calendar page would be beneficial. We seem to have that on every page except the calendar.

I know Bill. He is a member of one of the accessibilty GIO groups for the unsighted, vision and hearing impaired where I offer my assistance.
He uses assistive technology which does not always translate well, what he his speaking.

Hi Bill, 
You have posted what appears might be a Zoom Poll question to the wrong group. This is a Group for those with questions on how Groups IO works. If your polling question is about Zoom, please post it to our Accessibility Zoom Users Group. I will answer it there. 

If you have created a Groups IO Group and your question is about group Moderators managing GIO polls for members in the GIO group then this is the correct forum. If that is the case, please try again with your question. It did not translate well to text which means sighted people were unable to read words. Much of it was garbled letters and many of the responses were made with attempts to be humorous instead of helpful. 

Warm regards, 
Sandi Dickenson

Just as a data point, I checked in two of my groups, one of which is premium and other not, and both have the calendar visible.

All,

I know the responses were in the spirit of good natured fun, but as I have directly experienced over many years and via many personal mistakes, in email it's easy for sentiments to be misconstrued. Feel free to tease, make fun of, deride, or otherwise direct any and all denigrations, good natured or otherwise, towards me. But please, not towards others in the group.

Thanks,
Mark

If you don't select "Only moderators and poll creators can view results and responders, regardless of whether the poll is open or closed." or "Do not show who responded to the poll.", then everyone will be able to see how each person voted at any time.  If you select "Only display results when the poll has closed. Moderators and poll creators can always view results." it will do as it says.  I believe that answers your concern, but I'm not sure.
