I would like to let you know that when I used to type the date and time of an event manually I used to get a red error box around the date.  I find this has now been resolved however now it has the same problem as when I use the drop down window and select date and time for start and finish I get the date and time shown as "Nov 20, 2014 7:00 - 20:00" which reads as 7am to 8pm however what is selected is "Nov 20, 2014 19:00 - 20:00"

As a separate issue when selecting the drop down options one is offered times between 7am and 7pm and so a meeting finishing after 7pm is not offered.  I manually alter the times and use 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour by typing over the entries.

Another oddity which still exists is when "Nov 20, 2014 8:00 - 16:00" is entered one gets a red box indicating failure.  However the event starting at 8am and ending at 4pm is correct.  If I select it from drop down I it shows as "Nov 20, 2014 08:00 - 16:00".  If I type manually as "Nov 20, 2014 08:00 - 16:00" in theory this would work and my original lack of 0 being used would be the cause, but alas no.  It instead changes the time to "Nov 20, 2014 8:00 - 16:00" and gives the red box error again.

Hope this proves helpful and look forward to the fix Smile

The reason it reads as 'Nov 20, 2014 7:00 - 8:00 PM' is because it is conveying that both times are in PM. When I enter 'Nov 20, 2014 19:00 - 20:00' manually and through the drop down window, I get the correct output.

I will open up a case for this; thanks for pointing this out.

I was able to reproduce this issue. I will open a case for this as well. In the meantime, if you place AM after 8 when typing the date and time manually, it will select the correct date and time and the error will not occur.

Thank you for your reply. I will take on board the advice. Thank you fir taking time to address the issues. I however think you misunderstand the initial issue based on your reply. It dies not say "7:00 - 8:00pm". It rather says "7:00 - 20:00".
