Event Tags Over 100 Characters Caused SQL Error

Fix: Modified validations to truncate long tags so the error no longer occurs. 

Google Maps

Geocode Details Missing

When users provided a Google Maps location URL to retrieve a geocode, details such as latitude, longitude, hours, and phone number were missing because the Google Maps API now requires an additional authentication key.

Fix: Added the authentication key to web.config to ensure that all geocode details are retrieved and displayed for Google Maps URLs: 
<add key="GoogleMapKey" value="AIzaSyALWSXqWl2Kj9KfOxt7TK_QnaovBtzrma8" />..

Social Networking

Special Characters Displayed Incorrectly In AddThis URLs

When users shared events using the AddThis option, special characters caused URLs to display incorrectly.

Fix: Modified URLs to properly handle special characters.


Private Events Incorrectly Shown to Unauthorized Users on Related Events

When users clicked the Related Events link on reservations in the calendar, and the list included private events, they could see them even when they did not have authorization.

Fix: Modified the display to honor event privacy so they do not display to unauthorized users.


Keyword Filters Block RSS Feeds

When users set RSS feeds to search by keyword, nothing was returned.

Fix: Modified RSS feeds to search and return content by keyword.


iCal Feed Displayed Events 2 Hours Later

When users subscribed to an iCal feed and viewed calendars in Outlook, event times displayed as two hours later than on Master Calendar.

Fix: Modified functionality for iCal feeds to calculate for the correct time zone so that event times display start and end times correctly.


Overnight Events Showed as Recurrences in Outlook

Events that extended overnight that were imported into Outlook via iCal displayed as recurrences.

Fix: Modified functionality so that overnight events now display in Outlook as single events.
