#138 reminder email sent at wrong time when timezone is used
Opened 6 years ago by alick. Modified 3 years ago

Hi,

It seems that the reminder email is sent at incorrect time when timezone is used in the meeting. For example, the Chinese meeting [1] (21:00 UTC+8) was configured to send the reminder 12 hours before (9:00 UTC+8), but in reality it is sent out 4 hour before (17:00 UTC+8). Please take time to fix the annoying issue. Thanks.

Can we use it to send notification email to the list? It is not clear to me how to do that.

Seems like the issue lies in fedocal/fedocallib/model.py L952: get_meeting_with_reminder(). Seems the meeting metadata is stored in local timezone when non-UTC timezone is applied. This function accepts UTC time from arguments, but compares it with local time. I'm not sure if my guess is right?
