It is showing events that are entered for today as being on Saturday.  When I re-publish the presentation it refreshes and works properly until the next refresh interval at which point it reverts back to showing events on the wrong date (some events, not all).  Help!

Can you provide additional details, such as the player and operating system used.  When you say refresh interval, do you mean when the calendar cycles back to today, or some other interval?

Thanks.

Neal, thanks.  The machine is Windows 7 (64 bit), Chrome is v 24.0.1312.56.  As far as the "player"... I'm pleading ignorance.  We are new to the platform...the rise vision player is installed but not sure what you are looking for beyond that.  Thanks!

Thanks, I was looking to see which Player you installed, the one for Windows, or the Chrome App one.  Since you reported Chrome as being version 24, I know its the Windows one.

I believe I've found your Presentation, and I'm not seeing the problem happen at this time.  Are you seeing it on your Displays still?

I do not see it happening at this time either.  I will report back if it happens again.  I suppose it could have been a one-off glitch with a particular date and how it was entered into Google. (?). Thanks,

Neal...I just walked by one of our displays and it appears to be happening again.  I have never seen it when previewing the presentation from my laptop, only on the display itself.  No one has updated the Google calendar today...and no other changes have been published to the presentation.  No changes whatsoever to prompt this behavior.  Specifically, it is showing the AIMS Web event that was scheduled for 8:00 am today, as being on Sunday.  I would expect it to resolve itself soon (flip flopping back and forth as it has done in the past).  This is a big problem!  Thanks!

Thanks for the udpate.

At this stage we've started on a new Widget to replace the existing Calendar Gadget.  We expect to have it up and ready shortly (in the next couple of weeks).

If you don't mind, I believe testing your calendar would be a decent test when we get to that stage of the Widget development.  Would you have any objections to this?

Thanks.

Not at all.  Keep me posted.  Thanks!
