When user forwards a meeting invite, the meeting time is wrong

Technote (troubleshooting)


If the chair and invitee are in differenct time zone, the meeting time is wrong when the invitee forwards the meeting invite as a memo to another user.

For Example:

Server time zone:( GMT -06:00)
Chair: user1 client time zone:(GMT +12:00)
Invitee: user2 client time zone:( GMT +8:00)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. User1 sends a repeat meeting invitation which is from 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM on user1's local time to user2.
2. User 2 accepts this invitation which is from 06:00 PM to 07:00 PM on user2's local time.
3. User 2 switches to calendar view and right click this meeting and select forward.
4. The meeting time in mail is displayed as from 02:00 PM to 03:00 PM.
bug: The time of this meeting in forward mail is wrong.
If user opens this meeting and select the forward action from right click menu. The meeting time is correct in froward mail.
If I change the time zone of user1 to (GMT +10:00)and send a meeting from 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM to user2, then user2 will get a meeting from 08:00 PM to 09:00PM, and the meeting time will be displayed as from 06:00 PM to 07:00 PM in forward mail.The wrong meeting time seems that relate to the difference in time zone between user1 and user2.

Resolving the problem

To workaround the problem, open the meeting first and then forward it.
