From: Tassilo Horn <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Timezone/Encoding issues when exporting as ics and importing to Google Calendar Date: Tue, 07 Jun 2011 14:32:38 +0200 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) Hi all, I export all my org-files as icalendar files, push them to some webserver from which google calendar imports them. Basically, that works pretty good except for two things: 1. Encoding: All Umlauts and other non-ASCII chars show up as boxes in google calendar. When visiting some exported ics file and doing M-x describe-coding-system, I get utf-8-unix for those files. Doesn't google calendar support UTF-8? And if so, is there a way to export as latin1 if that is supported by google? 2. Timezone: I live in Germany and thus all my timestamps are CEST. The exported ics file properly declare X-WR-TIMEZONE:CEST. However, since we also have DST, in summer all appointments show up 2 hours late, and in winter my appointments show up 1 hour late. Is there anything I can do about it? The google calendar settings have CEST as timezone... Thanks for any hints! Tassilo
