Public Google calendar showing wrong time zone (GMT)

Public Google calendar showing wrong time zone (GMT)

I have a Google calendar of events for our local elementary school. I've made a month view publicly viewable, but it shows events in GMT rather than in US/Eastern timezone.

It turns out the link to the view had an explicit time zone of UTC as a query parameter. It's odd because I never put it there and (I'm pretty sure) it used to work properly.

"Could you explain exactly which sort of ""month view"" you've made publicly available? (A URL would be ideal :) Are you looking at actual web pages, or is this a calendar feed of some description?

Single occurrence events are stored as UTC, so that may be what you're seeing if you're looking at relatively raw data.

If you're embedding the calendar using an iframe (via the ""Embed this Calendar"" option) then you need to set the time zone there, too. If you follow the link saying ""Customize the color, size and other options"" (or something similar) there's a time zone option in the bottom left."
