Sorry if this is a duplicate, my first message seems to have disappeared. When I accept invites to my iMAC calendar all save to the wrong time (an hour later than they are scheduled). And some disappear. I was using iCloud calendar then tried Google calendar but both have the same problem. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Thanks

Make sure the current date and time are set correctly on your iMac and that you're setup for daylight savings time. (should be automatic) System Preferences, Date & Time. Also check to see if you're using the correct time zone for your location. If you're using the wrong time zone that would cause the one hour error.

Thanks very much. Unfortunately, I did all of the things you recommended - DST, Date and Time and time zone. It still doesn't work. And I updated all of the above on my iPhone, my iPad and my iMAC - all 3 share the calendar. Any other advice?

In Calendar/Preferences/Advanced, is the Turn on time zone support box checked or not? According to Apple, the description of that option is, "Change the time zone for all events in the top-right corner of Calendar, and choose a different time zone for individual events." I'm not sure exactly what that means, but I tested that if that box is ticked and you have a time zone in the upper right corner of Calendar, that the appointments will now show in THAT timezone, not yours. So if that upper right display is off by one timezone, your meetings will show for THAT zone.

Good catch Jake. I remember another fellow who had that checked and his calendars were off by the number of hours difference for the time zone he had chosen.

Heh! Been there, done that, got the scars...just a matter of remembering which scar goes with which "adventure."
