  1. Calandar notice is using GMT instead of local time

    I have been using the automatic notice feature for 2 groups that I moderate. This month's notice came out describing the meeting time as
    Friday, 17 October 2014
    12:00 AM to 02:00 AM
    (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time - Dublin / Edinburgh / Lisbon / London,

    when the appropriate local time (NJ) would be 7:00pm to 9:00pm.

    This is not helpful. Moreover, the UK is not on GMT in Summer, so the times listed are off by 1 hour.

    I would call this an error but I can't post/send it to customer care.

  2. Evernt reminders are showing incorrect time even though the event on the calendar is correct.

    Please fix your upgrade processes so that it doesn't almost always mess up the groups event calendar and reminders.

    This problem occurs every time yahoo groups is upgraded substantially.

  4. Fix the Timezone Problem with Event Reminders

    Our events are set up with the proper time -- 2-5pm -- and our calendar is set to the proper timezone - (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US Canada)- yet this is the message that our members set when they get reminders: "09:00 AM to 12:00 PM".

    You need to fix this or we will be forced to leave YahooGroups and find another way to organize our events.

  6. EVENTS not working

    Can you fix the EVENTS? We no longer receive notifications each month. They are important to us.

    Thank you,

  7. CATASTROPHE IN EVENTS OR CALENDAR

    Reminders in the group calendar are now appearing as garbage on the groups message boards. Group members are therefore receiving rubbish in their email boxes. This is serious and needs urgent attention.

    Has Yahoo removed the HTML function from activities in the group calendar?

  8. Reminders do not print the times entered in event.

    I set my calendar to AZ time and entered my times but the reminders go out with GMT time. - This is unacceptable. There should be an option that the international groups can use where the time translates to who the receiver is (like outlook) and doesn't mess with the point of origination times. Ours is a neighborhood group - no time translations are needed.

    Please fix the time zone. I put in Central and it just reverts to GMT. It also screws up the time. I think I can trick it into sending the "correct" time - as long as my members don't look at the "GMT"

  10. Rich Text Editor Needed

    Can we get the notes editor to be rich text? I am a mod for my group and like to insert rich text in the notes for group events or edit the notes using rich text features, bitmaps, pictures.

  13. We cannot enable the calendar function on the new group we created.

    Please fix the calendar function. We started a new group and cannot enable the events/calendar function. Without it the group is useless and will not be used.

  15. Please fix the yahoogroups calendar!

    Please fix the reminders in the calendar. No matter how many times I save the reminders, it doesn't actually save. I can edit the calendar entry 20 times, but it never "sticks". We haven't had a reminder sent out in almost 2 months.

  18. The events link is not (and had not) been working so I am unable to update or access the calendar for the group.

    The events link is not (and had not) been working so I am unable to update or access the calendar for the group. All the other options in the drop down list work, but events (the calendar) is grayed out. ???

  19. Change single event out of a repetition

    Sometimes it happens that you want to change the date and/or time of an event, that is an item of a series of regular events. E.g. you have a regular meeting every first mondy in a month. But in May there is a bank holiday, so the meeting should be postponed to tuesday.
    Right now, this is not possible, without affecting all the other events of that series.

  20. Provide an easier way to contact you for assistance.

    Since your latest change, our time zone is not correctly set on our calendar and events page. I've repeatedly updated it and it does not get saved or corrected.
