Calendar post item with recurring can't handle daylight saving?



I'm trying to make an option for users to put event to their calendar (simple V2CalendarPostItem does it). But I found a problem with posting recurring events. It works but when it goes after 27th of October (daylight save switch day) events are shifted by one hour. Setting timezone didn't help. 


PowerApps really can't handle this or is there any trick to fix it? Can you help please?


Thank you for help

Hi @MartinVasek please review the following. It helped a previous user solve the problem you're experiencing. 


Do you need the TimeZoneOffset?

We use the calendar posting and don't use it, just a straight date/time.


However, if you do need it, then I believe your issue is that you are not telling the TimeZoneOffset what the date is for the TimeZoneOffset.

TimeZoneOffset without the optional "Date" parameter will return the offset for the current date.

So, I believe, in this case, you would want to put the start and end dates in the parameter for the function:


        DateAdd(EditLeaveStart, -TimeZoneOffset(EditLeaveStart),Minutes),

        DateAdd(EditLeaveEnd, -TimeZoneOffset(EditLeaveEnd),Minutes)
