Send reminder to Outlook and iCal RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing a web application and I want to send reminders set as "all day event" to other users who use Exchange. My issue is that the users from other time zone(me in Europe, they in USA) they see the reminder started from one day before at 5 pm to next day at 5 pm, and is not marked as "all day event", this happened in Outlook 2013/2016 on windows, in iCal on Mac is working fine, also on iPhone. If I send to my colleague who has the same timezone, then is working fine in all mail clients.

    The ics file contains:

    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
    CALSCALE:GREGORIAN
    PRODID:-//Apple Inc.//Mac OS X 10.11.2//EN

    END:VALARM
    END:VEVENT
    END:VCALENDAR

    Is something that I do wrong, or outlook has some issues with time zone?

    Any suggestion would help me,
