Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

----------------------

When using a 24 hour, 7 days a week calendar on the activity, the dates are not displaying correctly.

Example: When setting a Finish date on a not started activity that uses a 24x7 calendar, the software is using the next calendar day at midnight (00:00) instead of the day selected at the end of the day (23:59).

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

-----------------------

When setting a Finish date, the software uses the same day at 23:59.

STEPS

-----------------------

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Show column for Finish and set the Finish date to 8th of October.
  2. After selecting 'Select' on the date, the Finish date is set to 9th of October.
  3. Turn on the time from User Preferences (Edit, User Preferences, Dates, Time).
  4. Set the Finish date to 6th of October.
  5. After selecting 'Select' on the date, the Finish date is set to 6th of October.
