Novell GroupWise 32 bit Client in German


The start and/or end date is different from what has been entered after change a posted all day event to a posted appointment.


Solved in GroupWise 12.

Additional Information

  1. start the GroupWise client in German and log in as an user.
  2. open the calendar.
  3. in the all-day-event part create a new all-day-event by using: right-click "neu" and "Empfängerloser Termin" (translated "New" and "Posted All Day Event".
  4. enter some text in "Betreff" (Subject) and click on "Aufgeben" (Post).
  5. you will now see the posted all day event. Double click on this event.
  6. uncheck "Ganztägiges Ereignis". You will now be able to change the time. change the start time to e.g. 00 am, change the "Enddatum" to the same date as the "Anfangsdatum" and change the end time to 10:00 am. Don't use the graphical selector. Doing this you will already see something strange. If you change the end date, you will see the the start date is already changed to the day before and the time has been changed to PM. There is no way to get this proper. You can now post the message and change it again after 2 to 3 times, you could have the appointment you are looking for.
This is not happening when using the English client or using the graphical time selectors.
